Buttery cloverleaf rolls look like their namesake. This classic shape usually has three “leaves” but these have four, which is lucky becuase they are so good. As fun to make as they are to eat, the rolls are always welcome at Sunday dinner and at the holiday table.

I made the following changes, swapped the amount of butter and oil (2 TBS oil and 4 butter), I cut them to make a full 24 - worked out perfectly, I brushed them with a little egg white mixed with cream for gloss and color. I may need to make a double batch next year - they were all gone in a flash.
