I had this recipe pinned on Pinterest (great but addicting site) and decided to make them today because
#1. I had all the ingredients on hand.
#2. We planned to clean out the basement today and I wanted to put it off as long as possible.
# 3.We love lemony, citrusy flavors and these had just the right amount of lemon flavor.
#4. Same as #2
Make sure you use real lemon zest because that is what gives it the awesome flavor.
12 Rhodes dinner rolls, thawed but still cold (note...I put mine in the refrigerator overnight and they were just right in the morning)
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbsp butter, melted
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon soft butter
1 Tbsp lemon juice or hot water to desired consistancy
A little bit of lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Cut rolls in half and place in a greased 9×13" pan. Drizzle with the melted butter. Mix lemon zest and sugar together in a small bowl. Sprinkle HALF of the lemon sugar mixture over the rolls. Cover and let raise till doubled. Sprinkle remaining sugar mixture on top. Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes. Remove from pan. Combine glaze ingredients. Drizzle over rolls while still warm.
