These rolls are delicious any day but, perfectly Lucky for St. Patrick's Day.

 

 

It's March! Can you believe it? I can almost taste spring as we speak! Even better, daylight savings is only in a couple of weeks. That means the days will feel longer - woohoo! It hasn't been that bad of a winter, but I'm ready for warmer weather. I'm especially ready to get our garden going. I've missed it these last six or so months. So what's say we kick of the month with a St. Patrick's Day recipe? This one is super simple (with step by step photos) and the whole family will enjoy these shamrocks. They are even more fun because they come with a 'dipping sauce' we all know how much more fun a food is to eat when it has a dipping sauce! Let's get started shall we?

 

Lucky Lime Rolls

You don't need much. All you need are some Rhodes rolls, a little bit of butter, some lime zest (not pictured) and some sugar. Four simple ingredients for your shamrocks will be ready in a jiffy!

 

Lucky Lime Rolls

This part is a little tricky - so watch closely. Using one roll, with a pizza cutter cut off a small piece of dough for the stem and press the rest of the roll into a 4-inch circle.

Make 3 leaves by cutting the circle almost all the way through, into thirds like a pizza, leaving the pieces attached in the center. Clip each leaf at the top to make a dip in the top of the leaf.

Here's where it's going to get a little messy. But messy is fun! Dip the cut and clipped circle, carefully in the melted butter.

Then into the sugar/lime zest mixture.

Place on a sprayed baking sheet (or Silpat lined), separating the leaves so they don't touch...which is kind of hard, just do your best! Roll the cut off piece into a stem and dip it in butter and sugar mixture and place under the center of the shamrock.

Repeat process with remaining rolls. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise about 45 minutes.

Bake at 350°F 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Aren't those just perfect for your holiday??I think they are absolutely adorable! Serve with green frosting dip if desired.

Did you not use the outer green skin of the lime in the zest? Mine are so much greener, did I do something wrong?
