Paradise Breakfast Buns

I get bored with breakfast easily and most days I need something that I can munch on while walking out the door. I saw these beautiful things and decided I had to try them.

Paradise Breakfast Buns

3 1/2 c. flour

1/2 c. sugar

2 t. baking powder

1/2 t. salt

3 T. lemon juice

1 c. butter, cut into pieces

4 eggs, divided

3/4 c. milk

1 c. raisins

1 7 oz. package shredded coconut

2 T. sugar

1. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the butter until crumbly.

2. In a small bowl, beat together 2 whole eggs and 2 egg yolks (reserve the whites) with the milk and lemon juice. Pour into mixing bowl and mix just until combined. Stir in the raisins and coconut just until incorporated. Be careful to not over stir.

3. Using a rounded tablespoon of dough (I used a heaping medium cookie scoop), place on cookie sheets. Slightly beat the reserved egg whites and brush over the dough. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown.

I was sad because my didn't get golden brown. I was afraid to leave them in longer because I didn't want the bottoms to burn. They still turned out really yummy though. I had to taste test one before breakfast obviously. The lemony flavor went really well with the coconut and raisins :)
