Makes 1 dozen
- 1 package (16 oz.) hot roll mix
- 6 Tablespoons honey, divided
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
- 1 cup sliced almonds
Prepare hot roll mix in a large bowl according to package directions, adding 2 Tablespoons honey to liquid. Cover kneaded dough with bowl and let rest 5 minutes. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add remaining 4 Tablespoons honey; stir in lemon peel. Roll dough into 36 balls (about 1- to 1-1/2-inch diameter each). Form clusters of three balls; dip each in honey mixture then in almonds. Place each cluster in a well greased muffin cup. Cover and set in warm place to rise about 30 minutes or until doubled in bulk. Bake in preheated 350°F oven 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with honey mixture, if desired. Remove from pan and cool slightly on wire rack. Serve warm or cool.
