These lemon bars are thick, rich, and full of white chocolate and lemon flavors. Plus…they have a crust made out of King’s Hawaiian Dinner Rolls!

 You know how much I love lemon. And you know how much I love bread.

It was only a matter of time before I married the two.

Have you ever had a King’s Hawaiian Dinner Roll? Who am I kidding, you probably have. And, if you’re anything like me, you inhale four of them before you even realize it.

{They sell four packs. Those are meant to serve one, right?}

Crust is kind of my thing. It’s what I’m, well, crazy for, obvi. So, when the opportunity arrises to make a crust out of something that’s not usually a crust sort of thing, I’m gonna jump at that chance, wholeheartedly. Especially when it involves King’s Hawaiian bread.

I love lemon bars…and I wanted to make a new version. A Dorothy version, shall we say. These lemon bars have the best drink ever in them: sweetened condensed milk.

{What? SCM isn’t a drink? Whatever. You don’t know what you’re missing.}

Anyway, I know you’ll love these bars. Lemon, white chocolate, and a King’s Hawaiian Crust. Head on over to the King’s Hawaiian Blog to get the recipe or go here to read the blog post.. I’m a contributor over there, did you know that? Once a month I’ll be bringing you a new and fabulous creation made with your favorite bread. You’re welcome.

What are you waiting for? Go on and get the recipe!

  1. King’s Hawaiian Rolls are the best eaten plain or with a thick slice of ham! Never heard of them being made into a crust before though. Great Idea! I can only imagine how good these lemon bars are.

  2. Every time I’m feeling unwell and “can’t eat anything else” (and I don’t know who I’m kidding here, since I LOVE King’s Hawaiian bread), I buy myself an entire 12-pack of dinner rolls and scarf em down. And buy again. And repeat. How’d you come up with the idea for these? They look fantastic!

  3. I have about 6 lemons left on my tree…these sound delish!!! gonna go get me a big 1 to try these lemon bars of any kind thank you for posting this one!!!

  4. I LOVE THOSE ROLLS! Hands down, the best rolls I’ve ever had. I remember eating them all the time with ham and pineapple when I was growing up. Seriously – it’s actually really good! Love the combo with the lemon bars too. So creative!

  5. I’m intrigued Dorothy! Never heard of these rolls before, but they look normal enough 😉 I never would have guessed they weren’t a regular crust! I guess that’s part of your culinary genius…

  6. Dorothy, oh my, lover of lemon here thinks these sound (an look) amazing!!! Am pinning and thank you for sharing the recipe! Have a fabulous weekend!

  7. I love love love Hawaiian bread. King’s is the best, but over here, you can get Portuguese sweet bread at a lot of places, which is essentially what King’s is. If you’re ever on my island, you have to go to Leonard’s bakery and try their malasadas and pao doce. It’s right across the street from my house. I have been known to buy a 12 pack of rolls and sneak them throughout the day with a bit of butter. They don’t last more than two days.

  8. What a fantabulous idea for the crust! I love the King’s Hawaiian loaf:) I just tear it apart to eat it~YUM!
