These yeast rolls don't require kneading, and the make-ahead dough saves you time on the day of your meal. I love the hint of honey, too. —Lisa Varner, El Paso, Texas

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°), divided
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Melted butter, optional

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. In a large bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Add the yeast mixture, honey, oil, salt, whole wheat flour and remaining water. Beat on medium speed until smooth, about 3 minutes. Stir in enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky). Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Punch dough down. Turn onto a floured surface; divide in half. Shape each portion into 9 balls. To form knots, roll each ball into a 10-in. rope; tie into a knot. Tuck ends under.
  3. Place rolls 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 50 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter if desired.
