5 dl. warm water
25 g yeast
900 g plain flour
75 g of honey
15 g salt
75 g soft butter
1 tsp. ground cardamom
1 egg for brushing
Pour water into a bowl and dissolve yeast in it.
Add egg, flour, honey, cardamom and salt, mix it all thoroughly.
Mix the soft butter into the dough and mix the dough thoroughly so it becomes smooth and firm.
Put the dough in a bowl and allow it to rise for approx. 2 hours, cover with a towel.
Turn dough out onto a floured kitchen table and divide it into 18 small balls and one big ball, to use for head.
Put the buns on a baking sheet with wax paper so it looks like a bun “woman”
Leave to rise approx. ½ -1 hour. So the buns rise to double size
Brush the buns with beaten egg and bake them in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 15-17 minutes.
Take the bun “woman” out of the oven and let cool on a wire rack.
Garnish finally with candy and icing.
