    Yield: 10 buns

    1 Lemon
    1 Navel orange
    1 c Sugar
    3/4 c Currants
    1/8 ts Allspice
    1/8 ts Cinnamon
    1/8 ts Nutmeg
    1 1/2 ts Active dry yeast
    1 c Milk; @ 115+|F/46+|C
    2 c A-P flour; more for dusting
    2 c Bread flour
    1/2 c Sugar
    2 ts Kosher salt
    6 tb Unsalted butter; softened
    - more for greasing
    2 lf Eggs; lightly beaten
    1/4 c Orange marmalade
    1/4 c Confectioners sugar

    Remove sections of the lemon peel in 1-inch strips and,
    using a paring knife, trim off any of the white pith.
    Julienne the strips and repeat the process with the
    orange. Combine sugar and 1 cup of water in a 1-qt.
    saucepan over high heat; bring to a boil and cook until
    sugar has dissolved, 1-2 minutes. Reduce heat to
    medium-low and add lemon and orange pieces; simmer for 8
    minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Drain and combine
    with currants and spices; set aside.

    In the bowl of an stand mixer fitted with the dough
    hook, combine yeast and milk; let sit until foamy, about
    10 minutes. Add the butter, half the eggs, and the dry
    ingredients; mix on low speed for 8-10 minutes, until a
    smooth dough forms. Remove from bowl and place on a
    lightly floured surface; fold in the fruit mixture,
    working until just evenly distributed. Place the dough
    in a lightly greased bowl, cover with a kitchen towel,
    and let rise until doubled in size, about 60-80 minutes.

    Divide dough into 10 equal sized pieces; working with
    one piece at a time, roll into balls. Place balls onto a
    sheet tray lined with parchment paper; cover with a
    kitchen towel and let rise again until doubled in size,
    about 45 min.- 1 hour.

    Set oven @ 325+|F/165+|C.

    Combine remaining egg with 1 tbsp. water; lightly brush
    each roll with egg wash. Bake for 20 minutes, rotating
    halfway. Remove from oven and cool for 15 minutes.

    In a 1 qt. saucepan over low heat, combine orange
    marmalade and 1 tbsp. water; stir until marmalade
    loosens. Brush each roll with the marmalade glaze and
    let stand an additional 10 minutes until glaze sets.

    Combine the confectionersgCO sugar with 2 tsp. water. Pour
    into a piping bag and pipe crosses on rolls. Serve warm.

    Make 10 buns
