Feedburner Freak Out! + Lemon Rolls

My apologies if you received an email with an old post from Then She Made...recently.  For some odd reason I got an email and I didn't send it out.  And, since I got the email, I'm guessing you did too.  I'm pretty sure that Feedburner just had a freak out moment.  Despite what it says in the post, I'm not doing another Nativity giveaway but I am giving away a heart necklace though, if you missed the previous post you can check it out here:  giveaway

But since I have you now, how about a new post anyway?!  Why, yes!  That's a good idea.

I'm really not much of cook but I do like to bake.  I found this recipe years ago when my mother-in-law gave me a book on cooking with frozen dough.  Like as in frozen bread dough - yum!  When we lived in Maine we couldn't get Rhodes rolls where we lived.  It was very sad.  Luckily though Colorado seems to have them in every store.  Yay!  This is one of those recipes that my family loves and they keep asking me to make these.  I made them last Sunday and they were gone before I could even get a photo of them all cooked and looking delicious.  Luckily, I did find the photo below from Rhodes Bake-n-Serv

Lemon Pull-Aparts

So, here's what you need...  

15 Rhodes rolls
2 Lemons
1/2 Sugar
1/4 Cup melted butter

For glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 TBSP butter, melted
2 TBSP fresh lemon juice

Step 1:  Grease a 9x13 pan with cooking spray and set aside.

Step 2:  Grate the rinds of both your lemon into a small bowl

Step 3:  Mix the sugar in with the lemon rind and set aside.

Step 4:  Take your dough balls and spread them out evenly in the pan.  Then pour your melted butter on top and sprinkle 1/2 of the rind/sugar mixture on top.  

Step 5:  Cover the pan with sprayed plastic wrap and let dough rise until doubled in size.

Step 6:  Once the dough has risen, remove plastic wrap and sprinkle on the remaining rind/sugar mixture.

Step 7:  Bake in 350 degree pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes or until rolls are a light golden brown.  Remove from oven.

Step 8:  Next, make your glaze by combining powder sugar, butter and lemon juice.  Mix well and then drizzle over rolls.

I'm sorry I don't have photos of my finished rolls.  They were downed quicker than I could get out the camera. They are THAT good.  Yummy!
