Fluffy Chive Dinner Rolls

I have so many chives growing here that I stick them in everything I can.  They are really good in these rolls which are great served with potato salad.
 Melt 1/2 cup of butter and mix it with 1/2 cup of sugar.

 Mix in 1 tsp. of salt, 1 egg, 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of buttermilk.  Add 3 tablespoons of chopped chives.  Add 2-1/2 tsp. of rapid rise yeast and 5 cups of flour.

 Mix it until you have a smooth ball of dough.  Place it in a buttered bowl, cover it and let it rise until doubled.  Roll it out until it is about 1/2 inch thick.  Brush it with butter and fold it in half.  Cut it in 1 inch strips and tie each in a knot.

 Place them on a parchment covered cookie sheet and brush with butter. 

 Let them rise until they are puffy.

Bake them at 375 degrees for 20 minutes until golden.  Let them cool on a rack.
