Recipe by Bonnie G #2
Found this recipe in a magazine (can't remember which one) and when I tried it I sure wasn't disappointed. They are light wheat rolls with flecks of minced fresh sage and the directions say you can bake the rolls up to a month ahead and freeze; though that didn't happen at my house as they were gone in one setting. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family does. Prep time does not including rising time.
- 1⁄4 ounce dry yeast, one package
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 1⁄4 cups warm water (100 to 110)
- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 3 tablespoons fresh sage, minced
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- cooking spray

- Add flour mixture and oil to yeast mixture; stir until a soft dough forms.
- Turn dough out onto a floured surface.
- Knead until smooth and elastic (about 8 minutes).

- Cover and let rise in warm place (85) free from drafts, about 1 hour or until doubled in size.
- Punch dough down; cover and let rest 5 minutes.
- Divide dough into 12 equal portions, shaping each into a a ball.
- Place balls 2 inches apart on a large baking sheet covered with parchment. Cut a deep (1/4 inch) X in the top of each roll using kitchen shears or a sharp knife.
- Cover and let rise for 30 minutes or until double in size.
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until puffed and beginning to brown.
