READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Navy Mom

I got this out of a magazine a few years ago and have been making it ever since. The key is to poke holes into the tops and then brush with glaze....Delicious!

These are fantastic!! I made them this weekend and we loved them. The tart lemon glaze on the top is the BEST!!! I got three mini loaves and they looked beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing the wonderful recipe.
