I don’t really like hot cross buns (crazy right?). I don’t really like sultanas. I don’t really like spice generally. This was going to be an epic fail but had to try it regardless. Yum-o! I’m not going to admit how many of these little babies I’ve eaten tonight (and how many sultanas I’ve picked out!). These are a deliciously soft cookie with a good kick of spice.
You could leave the sultanas out if you like or substitute easily with choc chips. You can add a sugar glaze over the top if you like for a nice shine. Simply combine 1 tablespoon each of sugar and boiling water with a teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Mix well to melt the sugar and brush the hot syrup over a cold cookie. The cookie must be cold before doing this.
These were so easy that Mr 4 and 5 year old helped make them. The crosses were their favourite bit to do of course!
