Recipe Ingredients for Traditional Hot Cross Buns

1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 cup warm 2% milk (110 to 115 degrees F)
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 egg
2 1/5 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup dried currants
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 dashes ground allspice
2 egg yolk
2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoons 2% milk

Recipe Directions for Traditional Hot Cross Buns

  1. In a small mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in milk. Stir in butter, egg, sugar and salt. Combine 3/4 cup flour, raisins, currants, cinnamon and allspice; add to the yeast mixture and mix well. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 4-6 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

  3. Punch dough down; shape into six 2-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray. Using a sharp knife, cut a cross on top of each bun. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.

  4. Beat egg yolk and water; brush over buns. Bake at 375 degrees F for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Combine icing ingredients; pipe over buns.
