Cloverleaf rolls are a unique variation on traditional yeast rolls.
This week’s #SundaySupper theme is all about being thankful and the fabulous bloggers are sharing Thanksgiving or Hanukkah recipes as well as something they are thankful for.
I have so much to be thankful for this year. I have a great family, fabulous friends both on and offline, my health, a roof over my head, and food on the table.
Speaking of food these cloverleaf rolls are slightly adapted from my fluffy yeast rolls recipe and would be great to make with your kids because they could form the dough balls and place them in the muffin tins.
