My husband made these for Christmas brunch and they were amazing! The lime and cardamom with just the right hint of sweetness is a very tasty combo. The rolls turned out perfectly--very soft and tender, just like a sweet roll should be. We will definitely make these rolls again and again. I can see this becoming a Christmas tradition!
Cardamom-Lime Sweet Rolls

I loved this recipe. Instead of the sugar glaze, I made a low-fat cream cheese frosting with only about 1 tbsp of lime juice. I frosted the rolls while they were still warm so the frosting turned into a light glaze rather than a heavy topping. Everyone really enjoyed them.

I JUST made these - they are still warm but half gone. I have absolutely NO criticism of this recipe or its result - they are fabulous and even better than the picture suggests! The dough is sticky, I had to add a bit more flour to make it manageable but the result is so soft and tender - I love the roll and the filling - fabulous! I would also try the same dough with an orange filling, maybe with nutmeg instead of cardamom as a variation. Definitely 5 stars!

These were wonderful and easy! Perfect for a special weekend breakfast. I made these with my 7 year-old without any difficulty. I used a food processor to make the dough and substituted nonfat greek yogurt for the sour cream. The entire family raved about these.

Amazing, excellent. As a non-baker, I found the dough forgiving and easy to work with. I loved the cardamom and lime, and would recommend adding pecans or walnuts. Delicious.

Really a nice twist on breakfast sticky buns. The citrus makes this confection mouth watering and I agree with several others on a cream cheese with lime icing rather than just juice and sugar - that really makes this roll sing.

Absolutely great! I like it so much better with cardamom than with cinnamon! It was perfect for Sunday breakfast.

Amazing. Moist and tender, light and fluffy, bright lime flavor, sweet but not too sweet, cardamom is there but not overpowering (I used the full 3/4 t.). A+. If you have a sweet tooth, you may want to add a little more powdered sugar to the glaze.

These were simple and delicious. Mine didn't rise very much but it may not have been warm enough in our house. Still good.
