Recipe by Charmed
READY IN: 1hr 5mins




  • Preheat the oven to 375.
  • Grease cookie sheets, or spray with non-stick spray.
  • Plump the raisins by covering them with very hot water and letting them sit for 5 minutes; then drain them and put them on a paper towel to dry.
  • Combine the water, butter, sugar and salt in a saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil, then add the flour all at once.
  • Stir with a wooden spoon over low heat until you have a smooth, thick dough.
  • Remove from the heat and beat for 2 minutes on low speed or by hand to cool it slightly.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition, until the mixture has a satiny sheen.
  • Stir in the raisins.
  • Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
  • The buns should pretty much double in size, and be golden and firm.
  • While the buns are baking, prepare the icing by combining all the ingredients in a bowl and blending until smooth and of spreading consistency.
  • Add more cream if necessary.
  • When the buns are done, place on a wire rack to cool and frost while still warm.
  • This makes about 8-12 buns depending on the size you make them.
