Hot Cross Buns ...they're not just for Easter anymore.
Preheat oven to 400° F. If you're making crosses, toss the flour and water into a baggie and massage them until they form a paste. Snip a tiny bit from the corner of the baggie and pipe crosses across the top of the buns. Since I just wanted to see how this recipe worked out, I piped crosses on half of the buns and left the other half plain. Transfer risen buns to baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes. I simply slid the parchment from my cutting board straight onto my baking stone in the oven.
