Easter treats aren’t just for kids.

Here are a few recipes from BlogHer’s food bloggers that would brighten up any Easter table.

Hot Cross Buns are usually eaten on Good Friday (just before Easter), as Gerry from Foodness Gracious explains. His buns go the traditional route, with the cross made from a simple flour and water mixture instead of the more newfangled frosting. After they’re baked, Gerry likes to split them in half and slather them in butter.
