Place ingredients, in the order listed, into the bread pan fitted with the kneading paddle and secure in the Cuisinart Bread Maker. Press menu button to select the dough program. Press start to mix, knead and rise. For best mixing results, scrape the pan 10 to 15 minutes after the program has started. When cycle is completed, remove dough and transfer to a lightly floured surface. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Divide the dough 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into an oval and place on prepared baking sheet and cover with plastic. Allow to rest for about 30 minutes until the rolls have about doubled in size. Once rolls have doubled, snip 2 to 3 vents along the top of each roll with sharp scissors and dust with whole wheat flour. Bake in preheated oven for about 35 minutes, until they are a dark golden. Once finished, transfer rolls to a wire cooling rack.
