Here is the recipe:
Mix 1/2 cup warm water with 2 tbsp. yeast and 2 tbsp. sugar. Let this sit for 15 min.
Mix and beat well:
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup melted butter
3 large eggs
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ (optional)
Add the yeast mixture and blend well.
Add 1-2 cups whole wheat flour and 3-4 cups unbleached white flour. (you want a total of 5-6 cups of flour). The dough will be a little sticky and soft.
Cover and let rise in a warm place for 40 min. Punch down the dough and divide into four sections. Take each section and roll it out on a floured surface to about 1/4 inch thickness in a nice circle shape. Brush the surface with melted butter. (you will need a whole stick of butter to finish the recipe.)
Cut the dough circles into 8 pie pieces with a pizza cutter or a knife. Roll up the wedges starting at the fat end and roll them up like a cresant roll. Cover the rolls and let rise in a warm place for 40 minutes.
Bake the rolls at 375 deg. F. for 15 minutes, or until light brown.
Brush the rolls with melted butter when they come out of the oven.
These are SO good. You will love them.
