Okay, maybe just crazy for people who live in drier/hotter areas like we used to.
Summer is all about citrus and the most popular citrus of all is lemon. One of my favorite things about lemon is that it can go so many different directions. Sweet, savory, spicy - doesn't matter. It can be paired with just about anything and taste delicious!
These rolls are so simple, and so sinful, but worth the splurge especially if you're a lemon fan. Jason looooved these. They are very sweet so I ate one and gave him the rest. He was in heaven!
Lemon + sugar + carbs = yum.
Lemon Pull-Apart Rolls
For the rolls:
12 frozen rolls, thawed but still cold
zest of 2 lemons
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
For the glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Mix lemon zest with sugar.
Cut rolls in half and place in a 9x13 inch sprayed baking pan. Drizzle melted butter over rolls and sprinkle with 1/2 of the lemon zest/sugar mixture. Spray down one side of a sheet of plastic wrap and cover the pan. Let rise until double in size. Remove wrap.
Sprinkle on remaining lemon zest/sugar mixture. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
While it's baking, combine the glaze ingredients and mix well. Drizzle over top of hot baked rolls.
