How to make Melon Pan ( Japanese bread rolls covered with crunchy cookie dough )

  1. (We start with the cookie dough)
  2. In a large bowl whisk together butter and sugar until creamy.
  3. Add the beaten egg and continue whisking to a smooth texture.
  4. In a bowl sieve together the flour, salt and baking powder. Spoon this gradually into the bowl whisking with a spatula. Be careful not to over mix
  5. Remove the cookie dough on a plastic sheet shaping like a cylinder. Tie the edges and refrigerate it for one hour.
  6. (Now let us make the bread dough)
  7. In a large bowl mix the flour, salt, sugar, yeast and milk powder.
  8. In a small bowl whisk the egg with cold water and gradually add it to the flour mixing with a whisk or a spatula.
  9. Mix well and remove it on a kneading board or plain surface.
  10. Knead it well.
  11. Roll it and hit it on the board for a few minutes until it is no more sticky. ( you can sprinkle a little flour if needed )
  12. Gather the dough with a cookie cutter and knead to a smooth texture.
  13. Pat it like a flat bread (roti) and spread the butter on it.

  19. Check the weight of each one to make sure.they are divided equally.
  20. Knead into a bun shape and place them on a tray , cover with a plastic wrap and rest at room temperature for 20 minutes. Make sure to leave enough space between them as they become double the size after resting.
