One a Penny, Two a Penny, Hot Cross Buns

Remember that nursery rhyme?
We never did Easter eggs or the Easter bunny in our household.  But I did make hot cross buns for Resurrection Sunday morning and gave each of the children a special gift.  We haven't had any children home for quite a few years but I still enjoy making the buns and this year I will make a few for my mom.  She doesn't bake any more.  At age 91 she still has at least 4 friends come to her home every Monday morning for coffee and goodies, so I will provide enough buns for her to serve the day after Easter.
Here is a little 3 x 4 card I made to include with the bakery items:

    And a little tag in case I bake up extras for someone else:
