Method

Raspberry Sauce 4 Steps

  • Step 1

    In a saucepan, combine the sugar, raspberries and mint leaves.

  • Step 2

    Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Use a fork and break down the raspberries.

  • Step 3

    Turn the heat down to low and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes or until slightly thickened.

  • Step 4

    Take it off the heat, take the mint leaves out and add the lemon juice. Set it aside to cool down.

Dough 9 Steps

  • Step 1

    In a small bowl, mix together the warm milk and active dry yeast. Cover and let it sit for 10 minutes.

  • Step 2

    In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, add the flour, 1 whole egg, milk mixture, sugar, salt and honey. Knead for about 5 minutes or until it comes together and the dough forms.

  • Step 3

    Add the butter and knead for another 4-5 minutes or until butter is fully mixed in the dough.

  • Step 4

    Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it sit in a slightly warm place for about 2:30 hours or until double in size.

  • Step 5

    Turn the dough onto a work surface. Divide the dough into 6 even pieces (about 52-55 grams each). Gently roll each bun into a small round shape.

  • Step 6

    Place them one by one onto a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cover with a tea towel or plastic wrap loosely, let them rise for 30 minutes in a warm spot.

  • Step 7

    Whisk the egg yolk with 1 teaspoon cold water in a small bowl.

  • Step 8

    When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 375°F, brush the Maritozzi with an egg wash and bake for about 12-14 minutes, or until golden on top.

  • Step 9

    Once baked, let the buns cool completely.

Whipped Cream 1 Steps

  • Step 1

    Right before serving, in a bowl add the whipped cream and icing sugar. Whisk until medium peaks form. (Alternatively you can use a mixer with a whisk attachment.)

To Serve 4 Steps

  • Step 1

    Cut the bread in half without cutting through.

  • Step 2

    Open slightly and fill with a 1/2 tablespoon of raspberry sauce and fresh whipped cream.

  • Step 3

    Top with pistachio powder or icing sugar.

  • Step 4

    Enjoy!
