Honey Wheat Hamburger Buns

I've been wanting to make my own hamburger buns for a long time, but never got around to it. Then the other day I found this recipe and it said to roll out the dough and cut it. I was always trying to figure out how much dough I'd need to roll into a bun shape. I thought this would work great. I just looked in the cupboard and looked for something that was about a 4 inch circle. I found a tupperware bowl that worked just great. You just need something that has a ridged enough edge to be able to cut the dough.

Honey Wheat Hamburger Buns

1 1/4 cup milk, warmed to 110 degrees (I used powdered milk made with hot water)
1 packet yeast or 1 tablespoon yeast
2 1/4 cup flour
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 t salt
1 egg, room temperature, beaten
1/4 cup honey
4 tablespoons butter, divided

Pour milk into mixer with bread hook attached, sprinkle yeast over milk, then drizzle honey over all. Let set about 5 minutes. Mix flour, whole wheat flour and salt in a bowl with a whisk. Add egg to milk mixture, then add almost all of the flour mixture, add the rest if you need to make the dough less sticky, sometimes you don't need all the flour. Knead in mixer for 10 minutes. Let rise in a large greased bowl covered with a towel until doubled in bulk, about 1 1/2 hrs. Roll out onto a floured board and cut with a 4 inch circle cutter. (I used a small bowl to cut circles). Place on cookie sheets and cover with a towel and let rise until double, about 1 hour. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
