Difficulty: Intermediate

Spice up your next get together by adding an Italian flair with this classic dessert. Struffoli is bite size fried dough that is coated in a lemon honey glaze and topped with festive sprinkles.

Ingredients

24 Rhodes yeast Dinner rolls, dough thawed

Zest of one lemon

Juice of half a lemon

1 cup honey

1/2 cup sugar

Vegetable oil for frying

Decorator sprinkles

Instructions

Cut the Dinner Rolls into eight to sixteen pieces. Then roll the pieces to form into small balls.

Fry the balls of dough in oil on medium low heat for about one minute, or until baked inside. Then place the balls onto a baking sheet covered in paper towels to let drain.

Combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar and honey in a pan and heat until the mixture is runny and the sugar is well blended. Remove from heat and pour the balls of dough into the sauce pan then gently stir until they are all evenly coated.

Arrange covered dough balls in a cone or bundt shape and top with decorative sprinkles.

      We do not have a recipe specifically for Bleu Cheese Rolls. Thee are a few you might be able to substitute bleu cheese for another type of cheese. You might want to do a “search” on our website for cheese rolls and see if you could use bleu cheese instead of the cheese it calls for. Have you seen a recipe? We would certainly be willing to try it to see how they are.
      Sorry that isn’t much help. If you would like to talk with someone about your question, feel free to call our Customer Satisfaction department and talk either with me or another of our baking experts.

      I think you could try substituting bleu cheese in this recipe: Parmesan and Asiago Crescents

      These are made to eaten warm or they can cool and then be eaten. These are made in Italy to be served as guests came by to visit throughout the day. They get stickier as it cools but that is the beauty of it!

      Thank you for your question! We have tried a few recipes in the air fryer but I’m not sure we have tried this one. I think it is worth a try and it would be nice to know how it works for you. If you do try it let us know and if it doesn’t work we would be happy to send you a replacement coupon. Just call our Customer Satisfaction department at

      I would assume around 300 degrees. If that seems to be too hot, I would turn it down another 25 degrees.
