In a stand-up mixer bowl combine warm milk (105 °F), water (105 °F), sugar, and active dry yeast. Whisk the contents well and allow it to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.

Add the kosher salt and 2 eggs. Whisk to combine. Next, add the flour and knead the dough for 3 minutes on a medium speed setting until the dough is formed. Next, add 2 tablespoons of softened salted butter and then mix the dough for 7 minutes until the dough is no longer sticky and feels elastic.

Shape the dough into a ball and transfer it to a medium size mixing bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it proof at room temperature for an hour or until doubled in size.

Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and form round balls. Gently flatten each ball into 3 inch discs.

Place the pre-shaped buns on a piece of parchment paper leaving about 2 inches between each other and cover the buns loosely with plastic wrap. Let the buns rise at room temperature for about 1 hour.
