Place all ingredients into the pan of your bread machine. Program the machine for Manual or Dough. Adjust the dough consistency as necessary with additional flour or water; the finished dough should be soft and supple.
Allow the machine to complete its cycle.
Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and divide it into 12 pieces.
Shape each piece into a ball. Place 1 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Cover; let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
Bake rolls in a preheated 375ºF for 15 to 20 min, or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Brush with melted butter.
Note: You can substitute white whole wheat flour for the all-purpose flour and canola oil for the shortening in this recipe.
