Lemon Pull-Aparts

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.

Lemon Pull-Aparts

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.

  2. pearl,
    Stopping by since you commented on my Valentine vignette over at Show & Share with Southern Living. I became your newest follower.
    This recipe looks great. I love anything with lemons and since I have some from my tree, I can't wait to make them.
