Yield: 2 dozen
4 Day Cloverleaf Rolls
prep time: 1 hour and 30 MINScook time: 10 MINStotal time: 1 hours and 40 mins
1 (1/4-oz) envelope active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (100º to 110º)
3 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp shortening
1/2 tsp salt
3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, melted
Combine yeast and warm water in a small bowl; let stand for 5 minutes.
In the bowl on an electric mixer, combine yeast mixture, sugar, shortening, egg, salt and half of flour; beat at low speed with the dough hook. Gradually stir in the remaining dough, adding just enough to get a soft dough.
Place dough in a well-greased bowl. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in size. Cover and store in refrigerator for up to 4 days. Remove dough from refrigerator and let chilled dough come to room temperature before proceeding. (Can skip refrigerating dough and move to next steps if baking the same day.)
