Sweet Dinner Rolls

Yet another recipe slightly modified from

1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F)
1/2 cup warm milk
1 egg
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup white sugar
1 t salt
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour + 1 cup wheat flour (you could do all white if you want, but it tastes fabulous this way, I think)
2 1/4 t (or one .25 ounce package) active dry yeast
1/4 cup butter, softened

Place water, milk, egg, 1/3 cup butter, sugar, salt, flour and yeast in bread maker. Select dough cycle and press start.

When cycle finishes, turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Divide in half, and roll each half into a 12 inch circle. Spread the 1/4 cup softened butter over both circles. Cut each circle into 8 wedges. Roll wedges starting at wide end (like crescents). Place point side down on ungreased cookie sheet. Cover with clean kitchen towel and let rise double.

Preheat oven to 375. Bake 10-15 minutes, until golden. I like to spread a little butter over the tops of the rolls when they come out of the oven, too.
