Our Favorite Whole Wheat Rolls

This recipe is our standard roll-from-the-bread-machine.  In fact, I rarely make bread in the machine because using it to make dough is so fantastic.

1 cup water
2 Tablespoons butter
1 egg
2 1/2 Tablespoons honey
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons yeast

Add all ingredients to your machine in the order above. Turn on dough setting. When finished, divide dough into 12 pieces and shape into rolls.

Place in a greased 9 x 11 pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes or until doubled in size. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.

You can vary the recipe to your liking by adding a handful of millet for a little crunch and/or brushing the just-baked rolls with butter.
