Hot crossed buns are the highlight of many an Easter brunch, and you can make them even more special by adding candied pineapple and candied fruit and peel mix. A little bit of citrus, a little bit of fruit, and a whole lot of flavor. This yeasted dough is easy to make and will be the crowning finish to your holiday gathering.
Shape dough into 3 dozen balls; place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Let rise, loosely covered, until double in size, about 30 minutes. Beat egg white and water until foamy; brush over tops of rolls. Bake in preheated 375-degree oven until golden, about 20 minutes. Cool on wire racks. Mix confectioners sugar with enough milk to make thick glaze consistency. Drizzle a cross of frosting over the top of each roll.
