Sweet Almond Buns

I fond always for sweet buns, its has been a long i prepared sweet buns at home, while i was planning to make out some sweet buns at home this time, i wanted to make them with some nuts while going through my pantry i got a bag of almond powder and almond flakes which was sitting since a month, immediatley i gathered all the ingredients to make out these sweet buns with almond powder and almond flakes..This bun is really very simple to prepare, delicious to enjoy..Just dip this sweet buns in a cup of tea and enjoy it either for breakfast or for dinner, they will tastes absolutely divine, also u can serve them with nutella spread or with fruits jams and butter..This buns stays prefect for three to four days in room temperature and for month if they are freezed in  ziplock bags,once they get defrost, just heat in preheated oven or in microwave oven and enjoy as u desire...

After an hour, make 10-12 medium sized balls, knead well until the dough turn soft, shape them as buns..Arrange them over a baking sheet lined over a baking tray..let them sit again for an hour or until they doubled their volume...Preheat the oven to 350F..meanwhile brush the buns with egg yolk mixed with water, springle the almond flakes and bake them in middle rack of the oven for 25-30minutes until the crust turns golden brown..
