First, in a large bowl add 1 tablespoon of instant yeast, 2 tablespoons of white granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt, 3 tablespoons of unsalted softened butter, 1 egg, and 1 cup of warm milk.
Mix everything together on low speed.
Begin to add your 3 cups of all-purpose flour into the dough, and increase the speed to medium.
Once your dough is finished it should be soft and tacky, and should not stick to your hands at all.
Then, place your dough in a greased mixing bowl and cover it with a towel for about an hour. Since your dough recipe contains yeast, this will allow your dough time to rise.
