While visiting north of Indianapolis, in Fishers, Indiana I tasted and delighted in these light as a cloud, easy as pie, and very lemony sweet-tart rolls made with store bought or your own yeast roll dough. If you are a lemon lover you may like these also. I thought them especially good with a cup of hot tea. I have adapted the recipe a bit but it was origionally found on a blog, creationsbykara.com by family.
Ingredients for Lemon Cloud Rolls:
12 Rhodes dinner rolls, thawed but still cold* or use your own yeast roll dough
* found in the freezer section at the grocery
zest of 1 lemon or grate a frozen lemon yielding about 1 tablespoon
1/4 - 1/2 C. sugar (use more if you prefer very sweet)
1 1/2 - 3 T. melted butter
1/4 - 1/2 C. powered sugar (used more if you like sweeter
1/2 - 1 T. lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Sprinkle with the remaining lemon sugar over the tops of the rolls and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven. Combine the glaze ingredients and drizzle over the rolls before serving.
Yield 12 lemon rolls.
