These delicious Hot Cross Buns are the perfect addition to your Easter Meals.

Ingredients You'll Need

18 Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
3/4 cup dried cranberries or raisins
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
flour, if necessary
1 1/3 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1-2 tablespoons milk


Combine rolls and press or roll to flatten.

Combine sugar and spices in a bowl.

Sprinkle flattened dough with 1/3 of the sugar mixture and 1/3 of the cranberries or raisins.

Fold dough over on itself and flatten again.

Repeat the sugar and cranberries process and fold over again.

Repeat one more time.

Knead the dough as necessary to completely incorporate the added ingredients.

If dough becomes too sticky, sprinkle lightly with flour.

Shape into a log and cut into 12 equal pieces.

Shape each piece into a ball and place on a sprayed baking sheet.

Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let rise until almost double in size.

Remove wrap and bake at 350°F 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Let cool.

Mix ingredients for frosting and frost rolls.
