I found this in a Rhodes Dinner Rolls insert. My mom loves lemon, so I made these as part of Mother's Day brunch. They were so delicious and gobbled up quickly!

Wonderful! My lemon crazy son thought these were excellent, and can't wait for me to make them again. Like others, I put it together before bed, and then popped it into the oven the next morning. Definitely a keeper here.

Yummy Sunday morning breakfast! My son loves citrus flavors and sure loved these--the grated lemon zest added a nice punch. I cheated like the previous reviewer and treated them as an overnight coffeecake, except I did go ahead and cut the frozen rolls in half using kitchen shears. Put them together before bed, covered with plastic wrap, and the next morning it was a breeze to finish up and pop them in the oven. Thanks, KC Cooker, for sharing this wonderful recipe!
