We have a plethora of limes around our house these days. While thinking of ways to use those limes, I came up with this recipe. It is super fresh and bright. I will definitely be making these again.
First you’ll need dough. If you don’t have a recipe that you love you can try this one. (I only used half a batch) After you dough has risen the first time punch it down and roll it out into a rectangle. Spread with butter.
In a separate bowl mix together the zest of 4 limes and 1 cup of sugar. You might need more depending on how much dough you made, but that is a good ratio to use.
Sprinkle/spread evenly over the buttered dough.
cut into rolls and let rise again for about 30 min.
I also added a little bit of crumb topping to a few of the rolls to see how that would taste. The crumb topping was a little butter, flour, sugar and more lime zest. It’s good if you go light. Then Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 min. BELOW THE CENTER OF THE OVEN!
The glaze for the top was a scoop of butter (2-3 TBS??) then two scoops of powdered sugar (1/2 cup??) then thin it out with lime juice and the zest of 1 lime.
They were seriously yummy. I’m pretty sure they have replaced cinnamon rolls at our house for good.
P.S. This week will be recipe week, I have a lot to share so hopefully you’ll enjoy some!
