Recipe for Whole Wheat Butter Rolls

(adapted from a Pillsbury bread machine booklet)

3/4 cup water
2 eggs
2 cups bread flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 3/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast

Place ingredients in the bread case and insert the bread case into the bread machine. Select the Dough Mode and press Start. When the buzzer sounds, remove the bread case from the bread machine and put the dough in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place it in a warm area. Allow the dough to rise for at least 30 minutes. Pluck egg-sized pieces of dough from the bowl and tuck the rough ends under until you have a smooth ball shape. Put the rolls about 2 inches apart on a baking sheet (or baking stone!) and cover with a clean, damp kitchen towel. Place the pan in a warm, draft-free area until the rolls have doubled in size. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes. Enjoy!
