I made these buns for the first time as I thought I would do a practice run before Easter. This is a wonderful recipe and the results were great. ( Ask my hubby as he is on his third one). I used buttermilk, only 1/2 tsp cinnamon and a combo of currents and dried cranberries, following suggestions made in your write-up. I will certainly make these again, but will use chopped citrus peel and currants. Thanks so much.

Easter is one of the most important holidays that Christians celebrate. It is traditional to eat these buns on Good Friday every year. The sweet yeast buns are amazingly delicious homemade from scratch, flavored with orange and spices.

As much as we love freshly baked yeast breads, a semi homemade recipe does come in handy on a busy day or for those who are taking baby steps into the kitchen. This recipe begins with store bought sweet rolls that is cut to make a "CROSS" pattern filled with orange-cinnamon butter, baked and then glazed to create the iconic cross sign.

It is sweet, enriched yeast bun made with fruit (such as raisins, currants and sometimes with candied citrus) and spices and marked with a cross on top, which makes them instantly recognizable. The cross is believed to represent the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, is made using flour marked before baking or etched on top with icing.

There are many stories as to when the first Buns were made, and the story is related to the Anglo Saxons. In the Middle Ages, home bakers marked their loaves with crosses before baking, which was believed to ensure a successful bake, warding off the evil spirits that inhibit the bread from rising. This superstition gradually faded, except for marking Good Friday loaves with the cross sign.

There is also a superstition that Hot Cross Buns baked on Good Friday never became moldy and it is good luck to save one bun until the next year's buns are made. The custom gained traction, and over the years, fruits and precious spices were included to represent health and prosperity. They were also known as "cross buns" until the 18th century.

Bake and finish with icing - Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes and cool until warm. Stir confectioners sugar, vanilla and water/milk to make a very thick glaze. Spoon into a small zip lock bag, snip off a corner and squeeze cross pattern on the baked rolls.
