Lemon Slices

Prep Time: 20 min.
Bake Time: 30 min.
Servings: 8-12
Difficulty: Beginning

The tangy taste of lemon makes this a great addition to any meal.


12 Rhodes Dinner Rolls (or 1 loaf Rhodes White Bread, cut into 12 pieces), dough thawed but still cold
1/2 cup sugar
grated zest from 3 lemons
1/3 cup butter, melted

Lemon Glaze:
2 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup powdered sugar


Cut each roll in half and press each half into a 3×3-inch oval.

Combine lemon zest and sugar. Dip each oval into the melted butter and then press into the sugar, zest mixture. Line them up in a sprayed 9×5-inch loaf pan, each piece on its edge to make a loaf shape.

Cover with plastic wrap and let double in size. Remove wrap and bake at 350 degrees F 25-30 minutes. Cover with foil last 5-10 minutes, if necessary, to prevent over browning.

Remove from pan to cool. Combine glaze ingredients and spread over warm lemon slices.

    How long does it take for the dough to rise?

    • Debbie from Rhodes
      May 10, 2021

      That is a difficult question to answer. It depends upon the freshness of your dough and the warmth of your kitchen. We are making Dough today that will expire 9 months from today. So the farther out the date is on your package the fresher it will be and the faster it will raise. Yeast needs warmth to rise. So the warmer your kitchen, the faster it will rise.
      So taking that into consideration, it will take 2-3 hours approximately to rise. You will need to watch it and then bake it ready to be baked. Hope this helps! If you need more help with this, please call our Customer Satisfaction department at 1-800-876-7333.
