This recipe is adapted from Sweet Dinner Rolls on AllRecipes.
In a glass measuring cup, combine the water and milk. Put in microwave until just warm - 1-2 minutes depending on your microwave. Remove from microwave and add sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add yeast and stir gently. Cover and place in a warm place to let proof for 10-20 minutes.
Move your mixture to a large bow and add salt, butter and egg. Mix in the flour one cup at a time. Cover and return to warm place to rise for 45 minutes.
Punch down and make 16 balls or crescents. Tip, at this point, you could also roll out some of the dough to make cinnamon rolls with some butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon!) Place your rolls on a cookie sheet and rise for 1 hour.
Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes, until the tops start to look golden.
