Ingredients

¼ cup water
hot
¼ teaspoon saffron threads
crushed
*
½ cup milk, 1%
*
¼ cup sugar
2 tablespoons margarine
1 ½ teaspoons salt
1 large eggs
1 tablespoon yeast, active dry
plus 2 teaspoon
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
to 3 1/4 cups
Topping
1 large egg whites
beaten lightly
1 teaspoon water
1 x sugar
*

Directions

Combine the hot water and saffron, and let sit for 10 minutes to soften the saffron.

In a mixing bowl, beat together the saffron water, milk, sugar, butter, salt, egg, yeast, 2 cups of the flour.

Add enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough.

Knead the dough (for about 15 minutes by hand, 12 minutes in an electric mixer, 90 seconds in a food processor, or in your bread machine using the dough cycle), then set it aside to rise until puffy (but not necessarily doubled in bulk), about 2 hours.

Punch the dough down, and let it rest, covered, for 10 minutes.

Divide the dough into 16 pieces, and shape each piece into a ball.

Place the balls fairly close together (but not touching) in a 12- inch deep -dish pizza pan or 9 x 13-inch pan, cover them, and let rise for 1½ hours, or until they're puffy.

Glaze the buns with the mixture of beaten egg white and water, then sprinkle them heavily with pearl sugar.

Bake them in a preheated 375℉ (190℃) F oven for 20 minutes, or until they're golden brown.
