    Summerwine's Note:

    These taste just like the clover leaf rolls that my mother used to make. I found this in a British recipe book called 500 Fabulous Cakes and Bakes. I like the idea of making a few of the rolls 4-leaf clovers. Who will be the one or two that get lucky. :)

    Yield:

    rolls

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Warm the milk until lukewarm.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl pour in the lukewarm milk, stir in sugar, the 4 tablespoons of softened butter and the yeast. Let stand for 15 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add eggs and salt to the mixture.
    4. 4
      Stir in 4 cups of flour a little at a time adding more if needed to get a rough dough texture.
    5. 5
      Knead dough until smooth (about 5-10 minutes).
    6. 6
      Place the dough into a clean bowl coated with shortening; cover with tea towel and let sit in a warm place until doubled in size (about 1 1/2 hours).
    7. 7
      Coat 2 muffin pans with shortening.
    8. 8
      Punch down raised dough and roll into balls, sized to fit 3 into each cup in the pan. Make a few to fit four balls in the pan for the 4-leaf clovers.
    9. 9
      Cover the pans with a tea towel and let rise in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours.
    10. 10
      Preheat the oven to 400F; brush the rolls with the melted butter and bake about 20 minutes until lightly browned.
    11. 11

      Great little rolls, and they bring back such nice memories. My great-grandmother and grandmother both always made clover rolls for the holidays. I love the idea of including some 4-leaf clovers in the bunch-- fun surprise for the kids. I think they could use a tad more salt (maybe because I used unsalted butter), which I'll add next time. Thanks! --Heather

      Fantastic...these are little beauties! I made a dozen in the muffin tins and the other dozen just as regular round rolls (due to only having one muffin pan)They are such a light and fluffy roll with a slight buttery flavour. Absolutly fab served warm with lashings of butter but are just as good cold. A great dinner roll! Thanks for sharing!
