Italian Herb Rolls

I've made these several times now.  They have a fantastic Italian flavor and makes my house smell fantastic when they cook.  My family really liked these!

Recipe adapted from: Rhodes Breads
Roll Dough:

3 1/2 to 4 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 tsp. salt
2 1/4 tsp. yeast
1/2 cup very warm water
1/2 cup very warm milk
1 egg
Mix yeast with warm water, let sit 5 minutes.  Add 2 cups of flour in kitchen aid, add the rest of the ingredients in the order listed. Add remaining flour until it pulls away from sides of bowls.
Let rise in warm place 1 hour or until double. Cut and roll dough into 16 balls. Place rolls in 2 greased metal pie pans (8 rolls each). Brush rolls with 3/4 of the melted butter and herbs.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired.  Let rise 30 minutes or until double.

Butter Spread:
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup butter, melted
 Heat oven to 375 and bake 12 to 15 minutes.  Brush with additional butter and serve.
