Jumbo Lemon Sweet Roll

You can also use this recipe to make regular sweet rolls, but there’s just something fun about a giant pastry! Look for lemon curd near the pie filling in your local grocery store. It usually comes in a glass jar and looks a lot like lemon meringue pie filling.  Recipe courtesy of Danelle McCollum from Let’s Dish Recipes.

Instructions
  1. Grease a 9-inch pie plate and set aside.
  2. To make the dough, place the milk and butter in a small saucepan and heat over medium low heat until the butter is melted and the milk is warm. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together 1-1/2 cups of flour, instant yeast, 2 tablespoons sugar, and salt. Add the egg white and the milk mixture to the flour mixture and continue to mix until thoroughly combined.
  4. Gradually add the remaining 1/4 cup flour or until dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl (you may not use all the flour). Continue to knead the dough for 5 minutes. Place dough on a lightly floured work surface and let rest for 10 minutes while you prepare the filling.
  5. To make the filling, combine the cream cheese, lemon curd and lemon zest in a small bowl and mix well.
  6. Roll the dough into a 12 inch square, spread the lemon filling over the dough and sprinkle with the 2 tablespoons of sugar. Fold the dough in half, then cut the filled dough into 5 long strips.Twist each dough strip.
  7. Beginning in the center of the pie pan, arrange the strips in a spiral pattern, pinching ends together as you go. Cover and let stand in a warm place 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  8. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake the sweet roll for 20-25 minutes, or until golden. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack while you prepare the glaze.
  9. To make the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Add more lemon juice, as needed, until glaze reaches desired consistency. Spread or drizzle glaze over still warm sweet roll.
