cheat, cheat, cheat hot cross buns - another L.L. recipe

Here’s another recipe from the luncheon loonies! One of the girls had Easter dinner at a relative’s house and these were served. She made them for our luncheon -

Separate a package of refrigerated crescent rolls into 8 triangles.

In bowl, combine 1/3 c. raisins with 1/4 t. grated lemon peel; spoon about 1 t. onto the short side of each triangle. Gently wrap corners of dough over filling and roll to opposite point; pinch to seal. Place point side down on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until golden. Remove to racks to cool.

Meanwhile - make glaze:
1/4 c. confectioners’ sugar and 1 - 2 T. milk - drizzle icing in a cross shape on top of each bun.

Because some like candied fruit in their hot cross buns - she also made a batch using candied fruit in place of the raisins. Sprinkle a tad of flour on the candied fruit so it doesn’t “clump”.
