Easy One-Hour Cloverleaf Dinner Rolls

What’s better than fresh, hot, buttery rolls to go along with dinner? Not much, friends, not much. But since rolls can be kind of an intimidating venture to take on at home, we often find ourselves turning to that familiar refrigerated tube. Or the bagged brown-and-serve variety. And those are both serviceable dinner accompaniments, sure. But we all know there’s nothing quite like homemade… and with this easy roll recipe, there’s just no reason to resort to storebought! Because these are done in just an hour. That’s it! They’re the perfect roll for beginning bread makers. They’re simple to make and buttery and soft and pretty much heaven-sent.

You warm some milk, butter, and sugar on the stove, and let it cool a bit before adding in the yeast and water. Once that has become foamy, you add the flour and mix until the dough holds together well. If you have a stand mixer and a dough hook, it just takes a couple of minutes to knead the dough. But even if you’re taking this on by hand, the kneading isn’t a chore at all. It just needs a couple of minutes of attention, so little that you can even go ahead and knead it in the bowl. Then you set aside the dough to rest, just for 15 minutes, before you start dividing it into rolls.

And we can’t help saying that we love the little cloverleaf design of these rolls, which you achieve by placing three little balls of dough in each muffin cup. You just roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place them in the muffin tin before brushing them with a little extra butter. You can also sprinkle them with some seeds and oats. Or not. Up to you. We like the little extra bite it gives, but there would be absolutely nothing wrong with leaving these soft and doughy rolls simple.

They get irresistibly golden in the oven and emerge hot and fluffy and cute enough that it would be easy to convince anyone that these came straight from the bakery. But luckily they’re easy enough that you can whip them up in your own kitchen any night of the week!
