Old Fashioned Dinner Rolls

Who says whole wheat breads and rolls are heavy? These rolls are as light as a feather, a delicious alternative to the usual dinner roll.
Intermediate Serves
SKILL LEVEL 24 rolls
1 envelope Fleischmann's® Traditional Yeast
1/4 cup warm water (100° to 110°F)
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1-1/2 to 2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk, (100° to 110°F)
1/4 cup Mazola® Corn Oil
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons melted butter

Dissolve yeast in water, stirring well. Let stand 5 minutes.

Mix whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, salt and soda together in large mixing bowl. Blend in buttermilk and yeast mixture; blend in oil and honey. Continue to mix on low speed using dough hook, adding more of remaining all-purpose flour, until dough is elastic and smooth. (If making without a dough hook, add only as much flour as needed, then knead until smooth and elastic on lightly floured surface, adding more flour as necessary).

Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to coat surface; cover and let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch down.

Roll dough about 3/8-inch thick on lightly floured surface. Using floured 3-inch round cutter, cut rolls into circles. Crease slightly off-center with sharp knife; brush with melted butter. Fold in half; overlapping top over bottom. Place on greased baking sheet.
Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.

Bake rolls on center rack of preheated 400°F oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve immediately.
