Today I made Lime Rolls!
1/4 oz (1 envelope) dry yeast, 1/4C warm water, 1/3C vegetable oil, 5-6C flour, 1/2t lime zest, 1/4C butter, 1T sugar, 1T citrus rum
Icing: 3T lime juice, 2-3C powdered sugar

In bowl, cream butter with sugar and zest.
Add rum. Blend well.
Spread 1t onto each dough rectangle.

Preheat oven to 350F.
Remove plastic wrap and bake 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely.
Add enough powdered sugar to lime juice until icing is barely pourable, or a little thicker, to make it spreadable.
Pour or spread onto rolls.
Let stand 10 minutes or until set. Eat.
