5. Preheat oven to 200°C(400°F),once they have had their second prove you will need to pipe the crosses on.To do this add the flour and water to a bowl and mix together,put mixture into a piping bag and pipe crosses on (it doesn’t matter if they are messy like mine,they are meant to look ‘rustic’).
6. Once the oven is up to temperature pop them in and cook for 30-35 mins until golden and springy to the touch.
7. Whilst in the oven you can make the ‘GLAZE’ instructions for this are on the packaging of the arrowroot powder,don’t forget to add the Caster Sugar otherwise your glaze won’t be sweet.

9. Serve warm with salted butter and a cup of tea,ENJOY.
