“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. :)”

Directions

  1. Warm the milk until lukewarm.
  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. Add eggs and salt to the mixture.
  4. Stir in 4 cups of flour a little at a time adding more if needed to get a rough dough texture.
  5. Knead dough until smooth (about 5-10 minutes).
  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. Coat 2 muffin pans with shortening.
  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. Cover the pans with a tea towel and let rise in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours.
  10. Preheat the oven to 400F; brush the rolls with the melted butter and bake about 20 minutes until lightly browned.
  11. Let cool slightly before serving.
