  • 1 sheet puff pastry sheet thawed
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a round baking pan with parchment paper, or lightly grease, and set aside. 
  • Roll puff pastry sheet lightly with a rolling pin to remove creases. Using a pastry brush, brush melted butter over the entire surface.
  • Sprinkle granulated sugar evenly over dough. Zest lemon over dough (or zest into a bowl and sprinkle evenly over dough).
  • Starting at one end, roll dough into a log. Slice log into six even pieces and place into baking pan. 
  • Bake for 16-20 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned. Remove from oven. 
  • In a bowl, combine confectioner's sugar and 2 teaspoons of juice from lemon. Stir until mixture is fully combined. If too thick, add more lemon juice a 1/2 teaspoon at a time. 
  • Drizzle over warm cinnamon rolls and serve immediately.
