Famous Wheat Roll Recipe baked and enjoyed during playgroups: Start with a warm cup of water, stir in a little honey and 2 1/2 teaspoons of yeast. While that gets foamy (about 10 minutes) heat up 3 cups of milk.  While the milk is heating put a stick of butter, a dollop of honey and a teaspoon of salt in a large wooden or glass bowl. Pour the hot milk over the butter, salt and honey combo and let sit until the butter melts and the milk is luke warm. Then add the foamy yeast mixture to the milk mixture. Stir lightly. 
 Now for the flour: you will need 5 cups of both wheat and white flour. Alternating between the two, sift one cup of white flour into the wet mixture, stir, now sift in one cup of wheat flour, stir, again, sift in the white flour and so forth…until fully incorporated but still slightly sticky. Set aside for about 10 minutes.  Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Oil your sheet pans.  Retrieve your dough, place on a floured countertop and knead for 5 minutes (add flour if necessary). Cut up the dough into 2oz balls and place on the oiled cookie sheets, bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Slather on the butter and eat them up!
