Pull Apart Lemon Rolls

Spring Oh Spring!  Where Art Thou Spring??  Around here we have been longing for spring.  We want to open the windows, eat dinner on the deck, and take walks around the block.  It snowed this past weekend and today was the glimmer of hope we were looking for.  With temperatures in the mid-40s, the kitchen window was open and the boys were outside getting dirty!  All while I was in the kitchen making these rolls.  I mean, what is a better reminder of spring than lemon??  With it’s fresh citrus-y aroma and it’s tart flavor, just zesting the lemons made me smile.

These rolls are very simple to make and oh so delicious.  There’s lemon and sugar on rolls topped with lemon glaze!  They were amazing warm out of the oven but still just as delightful after sitting out for a while.  These would be perfect for a weekend brunch, but tis the season, these will definitely be making an appearance on our Easter table!!

Pull Apart Lemon Rolls


  • 12 FROZEN DINNER ROLLS, thawed but still cold (I used Rhodes)
  • zest from 2 WHOLE LEMONS
  • 1/2 cup SUGAR
  • 1/4 cup BUTTER, melted
  • 1 Tablespoon BUTTER, melted
  • 2 Tablespoons FRESH LEMON JUICE


  1. Mix lemon zest with sugar. Cut rolls in half and place in a 9x13-inch sprayed baking pan. Drizzle melted butter over rolls. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the lemon zest/sugar mixture (reserving other 1/2 of mixture to sprinkle on just before baking). Cover with sprayed plastic wrap. Let rise until double in size. Remove wrap. Sprinkle on remaining lemon zest/sugar mixture. Bake at 350°F 20-25 minutes. Meanwhile combine glaze ingredients and mix well. Remove rolls from oven and drizzle glaze over top. ENJOY!!
