Basic Dinner Rolls

I have been learning so much about healthy eating lately and so I changed my roll recipe. Healthier than it was before, but still not as healthy as it could be... a little at a time though. :-)
These take about 1 to 1 1/2 hours total, from the start to taking the last batch out of the oven. It's really a fast roll recipe. You don't have to wait for them to rise. The smaller you make your rolls the faster they bake.

Basic Dinner Rolls
2 c. warm whole milk
2 TB yeast
2 TB honey
1 tsp. salt
1 egg
2 TB butter
2 c. whole wheat flour
2-3 c. white flour
Mix all together in a mixer with a dough hook, adding just enough flour so that the dough no longer sticks to the sides of bowl as it mixes. Let knead for 5 to 10 min. Roll out into desired shape.
Bake at 350˚ for about 20 minutes (for the large rolls like these, if you make them smaller, bake 10-15 minutes, depending on the size. The tops should be a light brown.

So this is what I do: separate into 2 blobs of dough. (I bet there's a more technical term for that...)

Roll out to about a 15" circle. (More or less.)

Cut into pie shape wedges with a pizza cutter.

Start rolling from the wide end of the wedge to make a crescent roll look.

Continue rolling.

Ah, all rolled up!

Place on baking pan.

Put the first batch in the oven, allow the next batch to rise.

Serve warm with butter.
