I used my kitchenaid..I put the flour,and yeast in the KA bowl mixed slightly..Heated all the milk in the microwave to 115 degrees.Added sugar to milk to dissolve and butter to melt..Turned my KA speed 2 and added milk mixture,and beaten egg..Mixed for 5 minutes..Placed dought in greased bowl to rise under a electric heated throw I use for all my bread making..Rise for 1 hour to double. Made the cloverleaf rolls ro rise again in about 45 minutes,baked in 15 minutes..We loved the texture and flavor of these rolls. i will definitely be making these again...

These rolls are delicious. Despite the unusual instructions, the method worked just fine. Next time I will go ahead and punch the dough down after 1 hours rest rather than wait the 2 1/2 hours. I made 12 rolls and they baked in 15 minutes.
