Lemon Curd Sweet Roll on a Skewer

Nothing is better to me than home baked bread.
Unless it is transformed into another
homemade sweet treat.
Just look at these soft, sinful delights!
**You can also use Rhodes Frozen rolls**
This dough bakes up so soft and light.
Let's start off with the dough recipe and then  I
will show you step by step on how to make it into
 theses little lovelies on the skewers.

Feather Light Bread Dough
4 C. Warm Water
3/4 C. Sugar
1 TBSP Salt
1/2 C. Oil
10 C. All Purpose Flour
1/8 C. Red Star Yeast
*I also added 2 tsp. fresh lemon zest*

Start by adding the yeast to the warm water. 
Let bloom for 5 minutes. Then stir in Sugar and Oil.
In large Mixing bowl mix together the flour, salt and zest.
Add the yeast mixture to the dry ingredients.
Mix until dough starts to pull away from the sides.
Add a little bit of oil to the top and sides of dough ball,
transfer into a clean bowl  cover and let rise double in size.
Next pinch off smaller 2 inch size of dough and roll out.
Next spread with a generous amount of
 Lemon or Orange curd.
*(you can find my Lemon Curd recipe HERE )
Fold in half.
And thread the top corner of the dough
through your sprayed skewer.
Then just start wrapping it around 
the skewer.
Finish off by pinching the dough to the stick.
Lay down on a parchment lined sheet pan
so they can rise once more.
I like to egg white wash the tops so 
they have that golden brown color.
I then added some fresh zest before baking.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-18 minutes.
I brushed on a powdered sugar glaze.
*(1 Cup powdered sugar with 3 TBSP of Lemon Juice)
Enjoy some of these today!
You won't be sorry.
