1In large bowl, mix whole wheat flour, 1 cup of the all-purpose flour, the salt and yeast. In 1-quart saucepan, heat water and 6 tablespoons each of the honey and butter until very warm (120°F to 130°F). Beat warm liquid and egg into flour mixture with electric mixer on low speed until moistened, scraping bowl frequently. Beat on medium speed 3 minutes, scraping bowl frequently. Beat in remaining 1 to 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour until soft, smooth dough forms (dough will be sticky). Cover; refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
2Lightly grease 12 regular-size muffin cups with butter. Place dough on floured work surface; gently push fist into dough to deflate. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces; divide each into 3 portions. Shape each portion into a ball, pulling edges under to make a smooth top. Place 3 balls, smooth side up, in each muffin cup. Cover; let rise in warm (80°F to 85°F) place 45 minutes to 1 hour or until doubled in size.
3Heat oven to 375°F. Uncover dough; bake 18 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool 15 minutes.
4Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, heat remaining 2 tablespoons each honey and butter until melted. Brush over warm rolls.
