HOT CROSS BUNS
1 cup sugar 2 cups of milk
1 tsp. salt 1 cup butter or margari
1 tsp. cinnamon 2 large eggs
3 pkg active dry yeast 1/3 cup citron (optional)
8 – 9 cups flour ½ cup currants or raisins
In a 2 quart saucepan slowly warm milk and butter to 120 to 130 degrees F. Butter does not need to melt. In a large mixer bowl combine sugar, salt, cinnamon, yeast and 2 cups of flour. With mixer on low speed gradually beat liquid into dry ingredients. Increase speed to medium; beat 2 minutes scraping bowl with rubber spatula. Beat in eggs and 2 cups of flour continue beating for 2 minutes. With a spoon, stir in enough additional flour (about 4 ¼ cups) to make a soft dough. Turn dough on lightly floured surface; add currants and citron, knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Shape into a large ball, turn over in a large greased bowl to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm place until dough is doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down on lightly floured surface, divide into 24 pieces shape into balls; place evenly in pans. With scissors cut a small cross in the top of each bun. Cover with towel and let rise until double, about 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 30 minutes or until brown. In a small bowl mix 1 ½ cups confectioners’ sugar, 2 tbsp. milk, 2 tbsp. butter, softened, ¼ tsp. lemon flavoring, adding more sugar or water to make icing thin enough to spread. Let buns cool for about 20 minutes then spread icing in the cross cuts on the buns
MARCH 2018 RECIPE CORNER:
This recipe, for the month of St. Patrick’s Day, gives a tip of the hat to the Irish. But, the history of the actual Reuben sandwich is debatable. As reported by: www.nydailynews.com, “Bringing together Irish corned beef, Jewish rye, German sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and Russian dressing, the sandwich was created in 1914 at Manhattan's now-defunct Reuben's Delicatessen, according to legend.”
