  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a saucepan, heat the milk, water and shortening to 120 degrees F-130 degrees F. Add to dry ingredients; beat until moistened. Add egg; beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Do not let rise.
  3. Divide into 12 pieces. Shape each into a bun. Combine paprika and garlic powder. Dip each bun in melted butter, then in paprika mixture. Place 6 buns in a greased 9-in. x 5-in. x 3-in. loaf pans; sprinkle with half of the sesame seeds. Top with remaining buns and sesame seeds. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool.

These buns take longer to prepare than the time indicates (if they have to rise for 45 minutes, how can the total time be 50 minutes?!). I see what times the recipe submitter has added together...

Being the inexperienced baker that I am (when it comes to baking with yeast) I didn't quite understand the directions. And I'm still not sure if you’re suppose to end up with 12 or 6 rolls after...

Pretty good rolls! I love making bread from scratch. Had to add in more flour because the dough was very sticky. I may add paprika and garlic powder into the dough mixture, though. I didn't thin...

These buns were very good. I made them plain to go with Thanksgiving dinner. I mixed the dough up early, then put it in the freezer. Later, I pulled it out to thaw and rise before baking, so ...
