Lemon Pull-Apart

 These lemon pull aparts are easy to make and are a satisfying snack for that afternoon coffee break or a great addition to your brunch menu. You use a biscuit dough for this recipe and it doesn't take very long to put together.
Ingredients for the biscuits:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2 eggs
  • Buttermilk 
  1. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  2. Using a pastry blender cut butter into the dry ingredients.
  3. Crack eggs into a cup, add enough buttermilk to fill up 1 cup. Lightly mix eggs and buttermilk with a fork.
  4. Pour into bowl with dry ingredients.
  5. Mix only until flour is incorporated, handle as little as possible to make light biscuits. The dough will be sticky and in order to roll into balls you might need to add a wee bit of flour. The dough should still be slightly sticky.
  6. Take pieces of dough and roll into 17 balls.
  7. Roll each ball into following mixture: 
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts, I used pecans
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  1. Combine ingredients and roll the balls of dough in this mixture.
  2. Place in a greased 9" round pie pan.
  3. Bake at 400ยบ for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.
  4. Invert immediately on a plate.
  5. Cool slightly and drizzle with glaze:
Glaze:
1 cup icing sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice

  4. I made these and they are soooo good. I cut the butter into the dry mixture before adding the wet ingredients. I didnt see that step in the instructions, so I hope that was correct. Thanks for the recipe God Bless

  21. Thanks for the great idea! I tried a twist on them today and make them with pumpkin puree & spices, then glazed with milk and cinnamon instead of the lemon juice. Yum!

  23. I have followed your blog for about a year or so. These Lemon Pull-Aparts just screamed at me to try them! So I made them this morning, but I halved the recipe as there are only two of us. I also added a little lemon extract to the liquid ingredients and they were so good! I will be making them many times. Thank you for this recipe. If you would like to see a photo these on my blog,go here http://farmpath.blogspot.com/

  24. Made these yesterday, and they turned out delicious!! When I rolled the dough into balls, I used very little flour. Then found the sugar/pecan mixture didn't want to stick well to them. I forgot the glaze and didn't even miss it...sweet enough without it.
    Thanks ladies, for keeping up your website.

  27. Our church had refreshments after the Sunday Easter service, and here was a platter of your lemon pull aparts! Well, I tried them and loved them. Thankfully the kitchen gal said the recipe is from you gals (and I have tried some of your recipes before) so I found this recipe and plan to make them real soon. Love your blogs, and photos! Thanks for a wonderful job and God Bless (from a Mennonite gal).

  28. I made these up substituting gluten free flour and added a little xanthan gum. The dough was nice to work
    with and they turned out fine. The lemon flavour makes them a specially nice bread to serve. Thanks.

  31. Thank you for sharing your recipes. I love anything lemon and a lot of the girls that I work with do also. I am new to Pintrest and am enjoying all the folks that are using this way to share their great recipes and ideas for doing things that families can share and pass down from generation to generation.
