Whole Wheat Soft "pretzel" Rolls

I made these following the recipe at goodcheapeats but I didn't do the soda bath and then I made them more "roll" like in shape than a pretzel.  They went with our black bean soup and were fabulous!

Whole Wheat Rolls

1/2 cup water
1 cup milk
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 cup whole wheat flour
3 cups bread flour
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon yeast
For topping:
melted butter & coarse salt
melted butter & cinnamon sugar
Throw dough ingredients into bread machine as directed(by machine manual) on a dough setting. When the cycle ends, remove the dough to a lightly oiled surface. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions.
Preheat the oven to 450°. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Roll each portion into a long snake, about 18 inches long. Shape the snake into a horseshoe. Twist the sides of the horseshoe, about halfway up, around each other twice. Flip the ends over onto the U of the horseshoe. Press to seal. Continue until all the pretzels are shaped.
Bake for about 9 minutes.  Brush with butter and sprinkle with coarse salt, if desired.
If you prefer sweet pretzels, brush the baked pretzels with melted butter and sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar before serving.
