Sticky Lemon Buns

I'm on vacation from work this week -- it was sort of the "booby prize week", since my co-workers got their dates on the calendar before me.  But did I get the best March week ever?  The weather is unbelievable.  I totally feel like I've gone away somewhere instead of just staying at home for a week.

But I digress.  A couple of weeks ago my friend Susan found this recipe at The Kitchn Blog.  She forwarded to me and I decided that vacation was a good time to experiment with sticky lemon buns!  So last night I made the dough, and the sugary-lemony filling, rolling them up tight, slicing into buns and leaving them in the refrigerator overnight.

This morning I pulled the pan out to warm up and have a bit of a rise.  Then into the oven for half an hour.  I opted out of the cream cheese frosting and chose a simple powdered sugar and lemon juice glaze -- why gild the lily?!  And now I can report...

They're delicious!  And especially when eaten with a strong cup of coffee in the 60-degree-outdoors-March-morning!

Hi,
It's mom, I am still unable to use my email.... I wandered into Facebook yesterday and commented on that "when am I going to die" post.
I apologize for yelling at you. It ia frustrating to be out of email.
I guess I'll have to address it somehow.
xxoo mom
