When life gives you lemons, you must make these lemon pull apart rolls.  They are easy to make since you start with frozen dinner rolls and then you add the love, that being lemon zest and lemon juice!  They are perfect for brunch and breakfast or even for a snack.  You might be tempted to keep these all to yourself (ummm, I was) but sharing these beauties will certainly bring a bit of sunshine and a smile to your family and friends.

It's really no secret that I really love my lemons.  I have made many recipes on the blog including a family favorite Mini Lemon Supreme cups, Lemon Pound Cake, and these Lemon Crinkle Cookies.  Use the search button on the top right to search for even more recipes that you might like.

I found this recipe at the Rhodes Bread website and was drawn to making them since I'm so ready for warmer weather and these seem so spring-like.  Do you agree?  Be sure to keep these in mind when you are looking for a brunch recipe maybe for Easter, Mother's Day or even a bridal shower.  They would certainly be a hit.

I also loved that my 10" cast iron skillet worked perfectly for making them.  I just gave it a good spray of vegetable oil before assembling.  The website also suggest a deep dish pizza pan or a 9x13 baking dish.  Once the rolls are done, it's time to add that lemony glaze.  You can also do that right in the skillet.  So what are you waiting for?  Get zesting, juicing and be prepared to have your boots knocked off!
