Garlic and Rosemary Cloverleaf Rolls

Karry Hosford

These rolls freeze well. Bake, cool completely, wrap in heavy-duty foil, and freeze for up to a month. Thaw completely, and reheat in foil at 375° for 15 minutes or until warm. The recipe doubles easily if you're baking for a crowd.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole garlic head
  • 1 package dry yeast (about 2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 1 cup warm 2% reduced-fat milk (100° to 110°)
  • 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Remove white papery skin from garlic head (do not peel or separate the cloves). Wrap head in foil. Bake at 350° for 1 hour; cool slightly. Separate cloves; squeeze to extract garlic pulp. Discard skins.
  3. Dissolve yeast in milk in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Add garlic pulp. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Add 1 cup flour, 2 tablespoons butter, sugar, salt, egg, and rosemary; beat with a mixer at medium speed until combined. Add 2 cups flour, and beat until smooth. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic (about 8 minutes); add enough of remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands (dough will feel tacky).
  4. Place the dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in size. (Gently press two fingers into dough. If indentation remains, the dough has risen enough.)
  5. Punch dough down. Divide dough into 12 equal portions. Divide each portion into 3 pieces, and shape each piece into a ball. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray; place 3 dough balls in each muffin cup. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
  6. Preheat oven to 400°.
  7. Uncover dough, and brush tops with 1 tablespoon melted butter. Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until browned. Remove from pans; serve warm.
