I wanted to try the cinnamon rolls on Hannah's blog, but I already had dessert for my New Year's Day party. So, I decided to make a savory version filled with lemon zest, parsley, and garlic. The top is brushed with Earth Balance and a little extra lemon zest. Yum!
I reduced the sugar in the dough recipe by 1/2, but I think it could be reduced by 1/4.
Here's the dough rolled out with Earth Balance slathered all over and a puree of 1 cup parsley, 6 cloves of garlic, the zest of 3 lemons, and 1 tsp salt.
My dough was a bit too soft (I halved the recipe and think I needed >1/2 the amount of flour), so the swirly shape didn't hold so well. But the flavor is rockin' and they were a big hit!
Mmmm! Lemony buttery pillows!
Here's a bonus shot of zested lemons and parsley bathing in the sun on a beautiful (below zero) New Year's Day.
