Whether you are still scrounging for ingredients or not, one thing is for certain: there is a lot of baking going on right now! I’ve been mostly turning to comforting recipes, things that remind me of my childhood. I’ve probably eaten more peanut butter sandwiches in the last 2 weeks than I have in the last 10 years. These rolls tick all the boxes: comforting, homey, easy to make, and makes a large batch if you have several people to feed or just need to eat 10 rolls to get through the day.

Saffron buns are traditionally baked around Christmastime in Sweden, especially in celebration of St. Lucia Day on December 13th. Delicately perfumed with saffron, with an adorable “S” shape and a traditional topping of raisins or decorative sugar; these buns certainly have a holiday vibe. While I am not Swedish, and had actually never tasted a saffron bun until I started testing out this recipe, I hope you enjoy my adaptation of them. This is also the second in a three part series using one of our favorite flours, King Arthur Flour. King Arthur All-Purpose Flour helps keep these buns fluffy despite rich ingredients like ricotta and butter.
As October comes to an end, thoughts turn to November which automatically makes me think of all that I am thankful for. I am beginning to plan the items I will make for our family’s Thanksgiving feast and of course I’ve already begun my Christmas shopping. As I think on these upcoming events, I am reminded of how blessed I am. How I have so many loving people in my life. I am reminded how important it is to reach out and show love to someone in need. Maybe its a coworker, the next door neighbor, or your child’s teacher or coach. Maybe you’ve wanted to reach out but didn’t know how. My thought is that food is a wonderful key to open the door to a persons heart and that is why we have a special recipe for you along with a special announcement.
