Easter Egg Bread

I remember as a child my mom would make Easter Egg Bread and it was always so beautiful I didn't want to cut into it. I've been missing it for a few years now & decided it was finally time to make it for myself. I found a few basic recipes online and played around with a combination of those and my original recipe for Lorilyn's Dinner Roll Dough and this was the final result. I also wanted to bring a little Spring into it using fresh lemon zest and topped with a lemon glaze. It's best served the day it's made and a perfect compliment to your tea or coffee at Easter brunch. Ingredient list and directions include coloring the eggs.
