0.3333 cup  seedless raisins
2 tbsp  sliced almonds
2 tsp  grated lemon rind
0 1/2 cup  powdered sugar

  1. Roll dough into a 14- x 8-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Brush surface with two tablespoons melted butter.

  4. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and let rise in a warm place (85 degrees) free from drafts, for 50 minutes or until doubled in bulk. Bake at 350°F for 20 to 25 minutes.
  5. Combine the powdered sugar and lemon juice. Drizzle the icing over warm rolls. Yield 12 Rolls.
