  4. Deflate the dough. Divide into 8 - 10 equal parts. Roll each piece of dough into a ball, flatten the ball and place on a baking tray (or two) lined with baking paper. Let enough space between a roll and the other. Melt 2 tablespoons butter that you have put aside. Spread the rolls with half of melted butter. Cover loosely with a plastic wrap and let rise until puffy for another hour.
