Prove for 1 to 1 1/2 hours , in a warm spot. Can leave in bowl. Dough should be approx. double in size

Pipe crosses on buns and cook in a pre heated oven for 20 to 25 mins at 220.
When golden brown, remove from oven, let sit for 5 mins and then brush with sugar syrup.

Like all sweet dough recipes these are best eaten the day they are made. However they do toast well the next and following days
