Pull-Apart Easter Blossom Bread
oh my, this bread was the star of our Easter! I had company and got enthusiastic reviews and compliments galore. Didn't change a thing, the bread is moist, pretty and not difficult at all, but people wonders what a great baker you are... a word of advice, be sure to form the blossom on the baking sheet directly, otherwise you could have some problems moving it, and you most certainly will have to reshape it. Can't wait to try it with lemon curd instead, but Nutella should be great indeed too!

Pull-Apart Hot Cross Buns
better than 5 stars! absolutely easy, no fuss at all if you make the dough in the bread machine, and the kitchen is perfectly clean, you barely dust your hands. I even omitted the cardamom, and had no raisins, orange peel, no nothing! I only had some cinnnamon handy and put the powder into the pan. They disappeared so fast that I couldn't possibly verify if they keep well, and a bunch of picky eaters I bake for!! I already got requests for a second batch.

Tart Lemon Triangles
I'll keep this! next time I could cut a bit on the sugar in the filling, as we like it a bit tart. Also, this pie can accomodate more or less lemon juice and lemon zest according to your tastes. I didn't use the food processor and cut the butter pastrylike by hand and the whole preparation took really a small amount of time; I guess it would have been even more quick had I used the food processor
