¼ cup melted butter
¼ tsp. salt
1 large egg, well beaten
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp.allspice(optional)
¾ cup raisins1 package
(1 oz.) dry yeast

Combine all ingredients except eggs and yeast and mix well. Dissolve
the yeast in a ¼ cup hot water. Add yeast and eggs to the rest and
mix well. Cover with a cloth and allow the dough to rise in a warm
spot until it has nearly doubled. This will take about an hour.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Shape the dough into round balls about
3 inches across and place them on a lightly greased cookie sheet or
jellyroll pan. After five minutes, remove buns and cut into the dough
about ¾ of an inch down, slicing equilateral crosses into the tops.
Return to oven. Allow to bake for another fifteen to twenty minutes.
Remove the buns from the oven and drizzle on the frosting.


2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 tbsp. Milk
2 cups orange juice
