My First Attempt at Hot Cross Buns

This is the first time I made Hot Cross Buns and the first time I will be eating them. That was a really good recipe to follow even though mine came out a little bigger than the Pioneer Woman.  I think I made mine tennis ball size and not golf ball size ;-)

They look yummy. I can't decide if I'll make mine for Saturday, or not at all. ;-)

Wishing you a blessed Triduum.

Thanks Barbara. As of right now I still haven't tasted one. :-)

Have a blessed Triduum.

Those look good! I made some last year and brought them to our favorite Scottish priest, now at the retreat house. They were pretty good, but probably not as good as he has had in Scotland. Mine were plain tasting(like they are suppose to be?), and I think I'd add more cinnamon and raisins next time. I like things more spicy and strong - mas alegria. ;)

I followed you from the foodie blog roll and I'd love to guide Foodista readers to your site. I hope you could add this hot cross bun widget at the end of this post so we could add you in our list of food bloggers who blogged about hot cross buns,Thanks!

yours look great. I am not taking a photo of my first lot made. I am going to tweak the recipe I have used a bit and make another batch though.

How did you get your crosses so straight and thin? Mine were really thick and doughy.

Alexandra, how nice of you to do that! I was hoping to share too but I wanted to make sure they tasted alright. Next year I think I will make more to share.

Alisa, thank you. I have added the widget to the post.

Therese, thank you. The Pioneer Woman's glaze directions helped a lot. I made the icing thick.
