one ha-penny, two ha-penny

Here are the afore-mentioned hot cross buns!  A little more browned than I’d like, but otherwise, yum!  I used the recipe from my vintage Good Housekeeping Cookbook (it ain’t Betty Crocker, or The Joy of Cooking, but it works.  Plus, it contains a hilariously dated photo-index of the recipes.), and they look the same as the photo in the book, so we’ll call it a success.

I like to make these on Good Friday for our minis (who am I kidding – I just love the smell of bread baking.  They’re for me, too.).  We read the crucifixion story and talk about Jesus’ passion.  It’s our way of heading-off the glut of egg-hunts and candy that are inevitable over the next couple of days.  🙂  I want our minis to approach Good Friday with the reverence it deserves, so until they’re ready for Communion, this is our ritual. 

And who doesn’t like a little orangey powdered-sugar frosting, anyway?  “If you’ve got no daughters, give them to your sons.  One ha-penny, two ha-penny, hot cross buns!”
