Hi, I'm Parker 👋
Instead of buying me a coffee, check out the best coffee I've ever had (And it's instant!)

Combine 1/4 cup warm water, the yeast and 1 tablespoon honey in a small glass bowl. Stir to dissolve and let site 5 - 10 minutes or until water has risen and is light and foamy.
In the bowl off a stand mixer or other large bowl add the whole wheat pastry flour, all-purpose flour and salt.
In another bowl add the remaining 3/4 cup warm water, 1 tablespoon honey, the egg and 2 tablespoons melted butter. Stir to combine.
Add both water mixtures to the bowl with the flour. Using the dough hook (or a wooden spoon) knead the dough on medium speed for for about five minutes or until the dough comes together and begins to form into a ball. The dough will be very wet and sticky.
Remove the dough from the bowl and either rub the bowl with olive oil or spray with cooking spray. Return the dough to the bowl, cover and place in a warm place for 25 minutes.
After 25 minutes grease a square baking dish or pie plate (I used an 8x8 dish, but 9x9 would work too). Flour your hands and punch the dough down. Place the dough on a well floured surface and divide into 9 even balls. You may need to add more flour to prevent the dough from sticking, but try and use as little flour as possible. Place the balls in 3 even rows in the baking dish and cover the dish with with a damp towel or plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray (so the dough does not stick to the plastic wrap).
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Allow the rolls rise for 15 to 25 minutes or until the dough balls are round and popping out of the pan. Once the rolls are ready to go melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and carefully brush the tops of the rolls with the butter. Bake the rolls in the middle of the oven for 20 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Remove and serve immediately with a pat of butter.
