Bake Time: 18-20 min

Ingredients

  1. 6 Rhodes Texas™ Rolls or 12 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
  2. 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  3. 1/2 cup finely chopped pistachios
  4. 6 tablespoons raspberry preserves
  5. 1 cup powdered sugar
  6. 2-3 tablespoons orange juice
  7. 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  8. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Flatten each Texas roll or 2 dinner rolls combined into a 3-inch circle. Place on a large sprayed baking sheet and brush tops of rolls with egg white. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let rise until double in size.

Place pistachios on a plate. Remove wrap and dip rolls, top side down in pistachios, patting gently to adhere. Return rolls to baking sheet.

With scissors or knife, make 5, 3/4-inch deep, cuts evenly around outside edge of each roll to resemble flower petals. With fingertips, make indentation in center of each roll. Spoon 1 tablespoon preserves into each indentation.

Bake at 350°F 18-20 minutes. Remove from baking sheet and cool completely on wire rack. Combine all remaining ingredients until smooth and drizzle over cooled rolls.
