  • 3 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp salted butter
  • 2 ¼ tsp yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1 egg beaten at room temperature


  • Slowly mix flour with honey, butter and yeast. Add water, milk and egg. 
  • Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute, scraping down the bowl frequently. Place dough on a lightly floured surface.
  • Knead about 5 minutes or until dough is smooth and springy. Place the dough in a large bowl greased with butter, turning the dough to grease all sides.
  • Cover the bowl loosely with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour. Place dough on greased cookie sheets.
  • Push your fist into the dough to deflate it. Cut dough in half. Roll each half into a 12-inch circle on a floured surface. Spread with softened butter.
  • Cut each circle into 16 wedges and roll each wedge. Place the rolls on cookie sheets and shape them into a slight curve. Brush with butter.
  • Preheat oven at 375°F. Cover rolls loosely with plastic wrap and let them rise for about 30 minutes.
  • Bake 12 to 15 minutes in the oven or until golden brown. Serve once cooled.
