This is one of the best bread doughs I've ever worked with.  It's also a versatile recipe.  The instructions below will make 12 cloverleaf rolls.  You may also try dividing it into thirds and making 27 small rolls by forming it into 9 balls per pie pan.  Finally, it would be a great dough for cinnamon rolls and crescent rolls! Perfect for holiday potlucks - everybody loves fresh bread made from scratch.  My mom's secret for rising bread: place the bowl/pan on a heating pad on low and cover with a clean dish towel.  Works every time :-)

  • 1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

  • 1/2 cup warm milk

  • 1 egg

  • 1/3 cup butter, softened

  • 1/3 cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast

  1. Proof yeast for ten minutes.  Add all ingredients to stand mixer and mix for about 1 minute.  Then switch to dough hook and knead on low until a ball of dough forms.  Place in greased bowl and allow to rise for two hours.
  2. Punch dough down and form into 36 balls.  Place 3 balls into each cup of a prepared cupcake pan.  Allow to rise for one more hour.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden.
Whipped Honey Butter

Whip one stick of salted butter with 1/4 cup of honey on medium high for about 5 minutes.  Transfer to pretty ramekins.
