Ingredients:  
2 packages (.25 ounce) active dry yeast
1 3/4 cups warm water (110 degrees)
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 egg, beaten
2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, melted

Directions:
Directions:
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand about 10 minutes.

Mix sugar, salt, 1/4 cup melted butter, egg, and whole wheat flour into yeast mixture. Stir in all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place dough in bowl, and turn to coat. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

Punch down dough, cover, and let rise in warm place until doubled again, about 30 minutes.

Grease 2 dozen muffin cups. Punch down dough and divide into two equal portions. Roll each into a 6 x 14 inch rectangle and cut into 12 x 7 inch strips. Roll strips up into spirals and place into muffin cups. Brush tops with melted butter. Let rise uncovered in a warm place 40 minutes, or until doubled in bulk.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden. Remove from oven and brush again with remaining butter.

If you would like to freeze the rolls, bake for 8 minutes, remove from the oven, allow to cool, bag, and freeze. Then when ready to use, thaw and finish the baking process.

Personal Notes:
The two times I have made this, the rolls are so enormous, they almost won't fit in my muffin tins! Next time, I'm going to cut the rectangle in half and use smaller strips to make twice as many rolls.
