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?
