You'll need 8 pieces of dough for the petals 1 bigger one for the center, so you could divide the dough into 10 pieces and join 2 pieces together to make the center. Form the dough pieces into balls.
Place the dough into an oiled bowl and rub some of the oil all over the dough. Let it rise in a warm place until it doubles in size.
In the bowl of your mixer, add the flour, salt and mix. Add the butter/egg mixture and the yeast mixture and using the paddle attachment, mix it all together until everything is well incorporated. The dough will be fairly soft.
In another small bowl mix the egg and the butter.
In a small bowl, combine the water, sugar and yeast together and let it sit until the yeast bubbles.
