  • Gently deflate the dough and roll the dough ½" thick. Using a 3½"~4" round cutter, cut out circles from the dough.
  • Butter half of each circle and place in a greased 8½"x4½" loaf pan. Cover with greased plastic wrap and let rise for 30~40 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake the bread for 25~30 minutes. Remove from the pan and let cool before serving.
