Parker House Rolls
The quintessential dinner roll (not surprisingly, given all the butter, both in the dough and brushed on top). Use coarse salt for sprinkling at the end; the extra crunch is fantastic.
Makes: About 18 rolls
Time: About 4 hours, largely unattended
1 1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons whole milk
4 cups all-purpose or bread flour, plus more as needed
