Tender Cloverleaf Rolls Recipe

Tender Cloverleaf Rolls Recipe

Tender and tasty, these rolls have been a favorite among our friends and family for more than 23 years. I'm the official holiday baker for our clan, so I bake dozens of these come Christmas.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. YIELD:30 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1-1/2 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 5-1/2 to 6 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Beat in milk, sugar, egg, shortening and salt and 2 cups of flour until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Roll into 90 balls; place three balls each in greased muffin cups. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 375° for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
