Step 7: Baking
Brush each bun with the egg glaze, and (if using) lay two pastry strips in a cross along the top. Trim the ends of the pastry dough to be flush with the bottom of the bun.
If you have two racks in your oven, you can bake both sheets of buns at once. If you don't, bake them one at a time!
Place sheets in oven, and bake until golden brown, about 12 minutes. For even baking, remember to rotate the baking sheets half-way through baking.
Let cool on rack.
These are best served warm with butter. Enjoy!
