    I have used this recipe for years. Really used it alot when my kids were growing up also when I had day care.The recipe comes from Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook 1953. It is great as you can use it to make different rolls also fried bread. It keeps well refrigerated for a week or better. prep time does not include riseing time.

      Very foolproof. Easy to make, great to have a batch going in the refrigerator for fresh rolls all week. I made half a batch and was able to make a dozen nice rolls tonight and I'll do the same tomorrow. My Kitchenaid works better with just a tad bit larger batch, but it managed to knead it more than spin it--next time I'll go for the whole batch. I also like to knead for a bit longer than usual 'cause I think it makes dough softer (besides, I'm letting the machine do all the work!) I sped up rising time tonight by just heating over slightly, turning it off, and letting rolls rise in a warm oven (rather than the cold-empty house).

      I make these rolls all the time and it is a no fail recipe! My family loves the clover leaf rolls and as others have said, we're spoiled with having these rolls quite often. Thanks Barb for posting such a classic recipe here for all to share and enjoy!

      This dough is ALWAYS in my fridge - it's so easy to mix up, and the kids think they're spoiled because they have fresh rolls with dinner all the time. I love to make caramel rolls with this dough on the weekends ... they're just amazing! Thanks so much for a fantastic recipe!
