Easter Brunch Recipes: Flower Sweet Rolls
- Rhodes Bake N Serv Frozen Dinner Rolls
- Powdered Sugar
- Food Coloring
- Frosting (store bought vanilla is perfect or you can make your own)
Sweet Rolls Recipe Instructions:
Start by thawing your Rhodes Bake N Serv Frozen dinner rolls. To do this, grease a pan and place them in it. (Each flower will use about 2 rolls to make, so plan accordingly when thawing your Rhodes Bake N Serv Frozen dinner rolls, depending on how many flower rolls you want to make.)
Cover them with a damp cloth and set them aside to thaw. This will take about 2 hours, depending on how warm your kitchen is.
*Tip-If you want to speed this process up a little bit, put them in your oven with the light on. They will warm and thaw just a little bit faster that way.
Once your Rhodes Bake N Serv rolls are thawed, get a cookie sheet ready. You will either want this greased or use a silicone mat.
Grease your hands lightly to help you work with
Pick up one of your rolls and break a piece off of it-about 1/3 of the roll. Roll it between your hands to form a small sphere. Then place it on your baking sheet. Repeat this with 4 more pieces, placing them all side by side to form a small circle.
Keep doing this until you’ve used all of your dough.
Set the dough aside to rise again for about an hour.
Bake at 350 degrees for 14-16 minutes, till just lightly brown.
Make Your Glaze:
While your rolls are baking, make your glaze.
Use: (this will cover about 6-8 flower rolls)
- 2 Cups of Powdered Sugar
- 2 Tablespoons of Milk
Combine until smooth, then add a couple of drops of pink or red food coloring.
Glaze the Rolls:
When the rolls come out of the oven and while they are still hot, use a pastry brush (or just a spoon to drizzle if you don’t have a pastry brush) the glaze on them. Cover them completely.
While your rolls cool, add food coloring to your frosting and then spoon your frosting into a baggie or piping bag. If you used a baggie, snip off one corner.
When the rolls are cooled, add a circle of frosting in the center of the roll in a spiral motion.
Then serve these pretty flowers.
Don’t they look great?!
When you eat them they will taste a little bit like a light, fluffy donut and the frosting is perfect for dipping them in.
These are the best!
I hope these are the perfect addition to your Easter morning! And I hope you get sunshine and flowers and Spring outside as well as inside on your Easter morning.
