Raspberry Lemon Pull Aparts are the perfect addition to your Easter brunch menu! Kids and adults alike will love these scrumptious pull aparts - and no one will believe they started with frozen dinner roll dough!

Raspberry Lemon Pull Aparts

To me, Brunch, is the greatest meal you can have.  What's better than having scrumptious sweet pastries alongside savory dishes like baked ham, quiche, and fruit parfaits?  Easter brunch is a meal I look forward to all year long.  Now I have another thing to look forward to - these Raspberry Lemon Pull Aparts.  I love the combination of lemon and raspberry together.  It seems as though it should be too tart, but the buttery fluffy rolls, and the sugar cut the tartness perfectly.

My daughter Olivia helped me with this Raspberry Lemon Pull Aparts recipe.  While pinching the rolls shut takes more finesse than most 6-year-olds have, there are plenty of other parts that they can do.  She was happy to "paint" the rolls with butter and mix and sprinkle the lemon sugar.
