Coconut Lime Blossoms

"Tired of winter? Bring a taste of the tropics to your family tonight with this yummy dessert."

I'm a HUGE coconut fan. Like major. When I saw this recipe in the Rhodes Recipe Box I knew they would be right up my alley. They are super simple to throw together and perfect dessert for any occasion. Make some today and let me know what you think!

 

Coconut Lime BlossomsYou will need the following: Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls (thawed), melted butter, sugar, shredded coconut, a couple of limes, some powdered sugar and cream cheese

 

 

Coconut Lime BlossomsWarning: this part is really messy!!! Cut each roll in half. In a small bowl combine sugar, coconut and zest from the limes. Dip each roll half into the melted butter and then in the coconut mixture.

 

 

Coconut Lime BlossomsPlace 3 coated roll halves in each cup of a sprayed muffin tin. Or, if you've used Texas rolls you will only be able to fit 2 per muffin tin.

 

 

Coconut Lime BlossomsCover lightly with plastic wrap and let rise until rolls are one and a half times their original size. Remove plastic wrap and bake at 350°F 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.

 

 

Coconut Lime BlossomsMix the powdered sugar with the juice from one lime. Place the cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 10-15 seconds, or until the cream cheese is warm (not hot), soft and can be stirred smooth. Add the cream cheese to the lime glaze and beat until smooth and shiny. If needed add a few drops of water or a few teaspoons of powdered sugar to achieve a consistency like honey.

 

 

Coconut Lime BlossomsSpread icing liberally over cooled blossoms.
