Lemon Sweet Rolls

Like lemony sweet things? Me too, that's why this recipe hit the spot!

Lemon Sweet Rolls
2 C warm water
2 T yeast
2/3 C powdered milk
1 1/2 C sugar
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 C butter
1 egg
5-5 1/2 C flour
olive oil
zest and juice of 6 lemons
8 oz cream cheese
6 C powdered sugar

Whisk water and yeast and let sit 5 minutes.
Add dry milk, 1/2 C sugar and salt, mix.
Add 1/2 C soft butter, then eggs, mix.
Slowly add flour to make a soft dough. Knead until smooth and elastic.
Drizzle olive oil, place in a bowl and cover with a damp towel for an hour.
Divide into thirds and roll them out into rectangles.
Melt 1 C butter (you could use less), and spread on dough. Sprinkle zest and 1/2 C sugar.
Roll them together and cut like cinnamon rolls.
Allow them to rise another half hour in a warm place.
Bake at 375 for 16-18 minutes. While they are baking, beat cream cheese, lemon juice and powdered sugar. When the rolls are done, pour glaze on top and enjoy warm!
