|EVERY FEW MINUTES|
|WHOLE WHEAT CRESCENT ROLLS|
4 tsp. dry yeast (2 pkgs.)
1 c. lukewarm water
1 tsp. honey
6 c. whole wheat flour, plus flour for rolling
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp. water
4 tbsp. sesame seeds (toasted 20 minutes at 200 degrees)
1 c. oil
3 tbsp. honey
2 tsp. salt
1 c. boiling water
2 eggs, beaten
1. Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water. Add 1 teaspoon honey.
2. In large bowl, mix oil, 3 tablespoons honey, salt and boiling water. When lukewarm, add 2 beaten eggs, then dissolved yeast. Gradually stir in flour, mixing well, but do not knead. Chill until firm. (Use a big bowl, it will more than double in the refrigerator.)
3. Divide dough into 3 parts and roll each one out on floured board in a large circle, as thin as possible. Brush with beaten egg mixed with 1/2 teaspoon water. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the surface. Cut the circle like a pizza into wedges about 2" wide at the outside. Roll each wedge toward the center. Dip top in egg mixture, then in sesame seeds. Place on oiled cookie sheet, leaving plenty of room for rising. Let rise in draft free place for 1 1/2 hours.
4. Bake at 425 degrees for 25 minutes until golden brown. Leftover rolls keep well in refrigerator. Yield: 4 dozen rolls.
