Lent is supposed to be about penance and sacrifice.  These biscuits from Joy the Baker do have a cross on the top, but it is certainly not a sacrifice to make them.  And it definitely isn’t a sacrifice to eat them!

Last year I made my grandmother’s traditional hot cross buns which were good, but these biscuits are even easier because there is no yeast required.  You just need a lot of butter and a few other ingredients.  Don’t worry if you don’t have a biscuit cutter, the top of a glass works just fine!  You need more butter and some powdered sugar for the frosted cross, but you can’t skip this step or they’re just biscuits.  And who doesn’t like a reason to make a small batch of frosting?
