Add in the yeast, sugar, salt, softened butter, egg and 2 cups of the flour. Mix on low until the ingredients are wet, then turn the mixer up to medium for 2 minutes.
Add 2 more cups of flour, then mix for 2 minutes until smooth.If the dough is still sticky, mix in more flour, 1/2 cup at a time until the dough is soft, but not sticky or stiff.
Place the dough in a greased mixing bowl and cover it with greased plastic wrap. Allow it to rise until double in size. About 1 hour.
Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into smaller rectangles, about 2 inches x 5 inches. Roll up each roll in and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
