Cloverleaf Dinner Rolls

This is one recipe I will never stop making.  My mother made these for us growing up and they were my favorite then and remain one of my favorites now.  Pop them out of the oven and just try to resist opening them up, putting some butter on and popping into your mouth.  Enjoy!

Sweet Roll Dough (Cloverleaf  Dinner Rolls)

Measure into bowl – ½ cup warm water (not hot) add, stirring to dissolve 2 packages of dry yeast.

Stir in the following:

  •  1-1/2 Cup lukewarm milk
  • ½ Cup sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ Cup shortening
  • 7 – 7-1/2 Cups flour

Mix with spoon until smooth.  Add enough remaining flour to handle easily.  Mix with hands.  Turn onto lightly floured board; knead until smooth and elastic (approximately 10 minutes).  Round up in greased bowl, greased side up.  Cover and let rise in warm place until double (approximately 1-1/2 – 2 hours).

Punch down and round into balls, placing three balls into muffin tins. Cover and let rise until double (approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour).

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
