Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 8 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray.
  • 2 Separate dough into 8 triangles. In small bowl, mix raisins and lemon peel. Spoon raisin mixture evenly on narrow end of each triangle. Roll up to enclose filling and pinch dough to form a ball; press seams to seal. Place buns, seam side down, in muffin cups.
  • 3 Bake 11 to 12 minutes or until golden. Remove from pan to cooling rack; cool at least 20 minutes.
  • 4 In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and milk (icing will be thick). Spoon icing into small resealable food-storage plastic bag. Cut off tiny corner of bag; squeeze bag to pipe icing in cross shape on top of each cooled bun.

Expert Tips

For a tart twist, use Meyer lemon juice instead of milk in the icing.

Substitute golden raisins, dried cranberries or other dried fruits for the regular raisins.

If you can’t find a Meyer lemon, use a regular one. Or try orange peel for a different flavor.
