Expert Tips

Bake and freeze Easy Snowflake Buns up to 3 months ahead of time. Heat the frozen rolls in a 350°F oven just before serving.

Use a small resealable plastic food-storage bag for a quick, disposable decorating bag. Spoon the flour mixture into the bag, cut the tip off one corner, and pipe the mixture onto the dough.
