Easy Lemon Sweet Rolls Recipe

These Easy Lemon Rolls are one of my favorite quick breakfast treats. They only take a few minutes to whip together and they taste great! Chicken Legs and I can finish off the whole batch ourselves on a good Saturday morning. Oops! These rolls are great for breakfast, brunch, or dessert. They are really good slightly warm with some vanilla ice cream! YUM!

How to Make Easy Glazed Lemon Rolls

These sweet rolls are super easy to make. Start with beating together cream cheese, brown sugar, and lemon zest at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Next, unroll a can of refrigerated French bread dough. Spread the filling over the dough, roll up, slice and bake. While the rolls are cooking make a quick lemon glaze with powdered sugar and lemon juice. Remove the rolls from the oven and pour the glaze over the hot rolls. Let cool slightly and enjoy.

  1. Just made these for this morning's Valentine breakfast. Put in muffin tins and they got a little darker ( I also lowered heat by 10 degrees–my oven) but only took 20 minutes. Delish! Will be making them again and again. Thanks ! How do I change my email address ? mine is denisecott@yahoo.com

  2. Very good. I didn't have a knife so I used the dental floss trick. Will be making these instead of cinnamon rolls for awhile!
