Hot Cross Bunny




Introduction: Hot Cross Bunny

A project without much explanation needed. Instead of a bun, this is made with an orange zest infused raisin cookie dough.

I used the following recipe:
Cream 170g (1 1/2 sticks) softened unsalted butter together with 1 1/2 cups caster sugar until pale and fluffy and whisk in 2 eggs.

Stir together 3 cups plain flour, the zest of 1 orange1/2 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp salt.

Slowly mix in the dry ingredients with the egg/sugar/butter, alternating between small portions of the dry ingredients and 2/3 cup buttermilk (or milk with a dash of lemon juice). Fold in 1 cup raisins.

Shape the dough into two big circles topped with a small one (classic snowman shape) and add ears and a tail. The cross is a mix of water and flour, and piped on afterwards. Bake for approx. 15 minutes, at 180C, or until risen and golden. Done.

And yes, I made this cookie just for a very questionable pun.
