Tessa's Recipe Rundown...

Taste: Just as the name describes! Bright, sweet, and citrusy.
Texture: For all of the shortcuts taken to make this recipe quick and easy, these rolls are shockingly fluffy and tender.
Ease: Super easy, but a little messy.
Pros: Nostalgic and delicious, but easy enough to make for a special breakfast or brunch.
Cons: None!
Would I make this again? Have already made these several times!

    Hi Tessa, they look great! I have also gotten into sweet yeast dough with fruits. You can also heat up sliced up strawberries, raspberries or other fruit with a bit of lemon juice and cornstarch and then place that inside the dough. So great and delicious!
    Just one question, though. Is there no rise at all? Or maybe only one but you didn’t mention it? Thanks for letting me know.

    Hi! I am trying to read your email and recipe, but it keeps jumping ahead so it makes it impossible! It is almost pulsing as it jumps! Could it have something to do with the photos changing? As I type this , the screen keeps jumping out of sight and I have to scroll back to see what I am writing! There must be a glitch in your new format! This is a new iPad, so it isn’t on my end. Help!

    I’m not able to see the actual video. I saw the advertisement before but with no sound. Now unable to see the video at all. Screen remains blank with know sound either.

    I’m not sure what everyone is talking about regarding the jumping. I was able to view the post without any problem on my phone. I just noticed their posts are dated the 14th, so maybe it’s been fixed.
    Anyway these rolls look yummy!

    I didn’t have any issues with it jumping. I’m watching from a new iPad. Hopefully the problems is fixed. I did however have to watch a commercial in the middle of one of your videos on this page. I understand the need for advertising but should be at the beginning and not in the middle. Thanks for the recipe, I’m make for breakfast this weekend.

    I made this last weekend for the first time when we had company. Everyone loved them and have been still talking about them all week. Currently making my second batch. Can’t believe how easy and delicious they are. Might need to make this a weekly tradition. 🙂

    These were so good! I made them exactly and they came out perfect! The only thing I did was when I made the dough,I used it the next day.It was much easier to work with. I cut the dough in half and will make the other batch this week.Great recipe! Will make again.
