You may actually remember these yummy sweet rolls from a guest post that I did last summer over at Little Miss Celebration while my friend Cindy was on vacation.  Well I think they are the perfect pick me up for these long and cold winter days…..and nights.  Lemons are so bright and cheerful, they just seem to scream summer!

This was the very first time that I made a yeast dough without using my bread machine…..it was quite traumatic.  Just kidding, it was really simple. ;)  Start by heating your water and milk to 110 to 115 degrees…..

add the yeast…..

and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes to proof…..

If your yeast does not puff up like this, then it is dead and you need to go buy a new jar. ;)  Now pour the yeast into the bowl of a stand mixer…..

Then add the butter, sugar, flour, salt, and egg and mix for 4 to 5 minutes to combine…..

Place dough into an oiled bowl and cover.  Allow dough to rise in a warm location for about 1 and a 1/2 hours, or until doubled…..

Yeast Dough Covered cookingwithcurls.com

My mixer has a plastic cover, so I left it in there to rise…..

You don’t need to be afraid of yeast dough, it is really forgiving. :)  Remove dough and place on a flour covered work surface.  Roll dough out to a 15″ x 18″ rectangle.  Spread lemon curd over dough to within 1/2″ of the edge…..

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place rolls in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through in the center…..

My rolls shrunk up, because I grabbed the wrong sized pan.  Mine was larger than 13 x 9, and I didn’t realize it until they were done.  It did not affect the taste at all…..

I really wish I had some of the sweet rolls this weekend, to help cheer me up when I was painting my son’s bedroom.  Those of you with small children, never let them talk you into painting their room dark red!!!  Why?

Because it is REALLY time consuming to repaint it.  First you have to use primer…..

Do you see that red circle on the floor?  That is why there is no carpet!  Okay, then you get to roll on a second coat of primer…..

Then you start painting with your chosen color…..mine is Behr “Falling Snow”, LOL.  But it still isn’t covering, so you go back to Home Depot and buy another can of paint with the primer in it…..

The wall on the right has 2 coats of primer, one coat of paint, and one coat of paint with primer.  The fumes are apparently getting to me, that is a very blurry photo! ;)

There were red roller marks on the ceiling, so I had to prime and repaint that as well. :)  I really like the color, I think I am going to repaint the entire house with it!  I better bake and freeze a lot sweet rolls. ;)

Enjoy!

    My mouth is completely watering. Not over the paint. ;) I painted one wall of my old house about that same color and my sister-in-law “helped.” By “helped,” I mean she dumped over a whole cup of red paint onto my light carpet. I got ALL of it out, if you can believe that. But I’ve never let her “help” me paint again. :P

      Thanks Andi. You are so lucky that you got it out, we tried and tried with a RugDoctor but it would not come out! :( My son was the one that spilled the paint, so I never let him paint again. Now he can mess up his own walls in his own house!!

      Sylvia, have you tried hovering over them…then click on the button that pops up? I do know that my pin-it buttons on my images are not working in firefox. I hope that helps. :)

    I really do love this recipe, Lisa! It looks absolutely delicious. I can almost taste them now. I have to make these soon. Thanks for sharing! By the way, I had to paint over my son’s artwork on his wall done in permanent marker (done without permission). The art was really good, but buyers coming in at the time, would not have appreciated it.

      Thank you so much Jodee, they are really delicious. We actually lost our deposit once when we moved out of a rental house. My daughter had drawn a single line in orange marker on the wallpaper in the bedroom! Those darn kids. ;)

    Saw this at Tatertots & Jello link party and had to PIN the recipe. I love sweet rolls and anything lemony is to die for. Thanks so much! If you haven’t already, I’d love for you to link up at Link’n Blogs. :)

      I have honestly never tried to freeze them before. I have read that you can freeze them after you proof them, then let them defrost and rise before baking them. You can also bake them, then freeze them. Then you would defrost them, let them come back to room temperature and frost them. I hope that helps. :)

    Hi,
    I would like to make the rolls, however instant yeast was sold out. I have bought fresh yeast,
    how much do I need? Is the process still the same?
