After the dough triples in size, place the dough onto a large cutting board lightly greased with olive oil.
Divide the dough in half (it’s easier to work with smaller portion) and cover the other half with a clean kitchen towel or plastic food wrap.
Roll into a log and cut the log in half. Roll the first half into a thinner log.
Cut into small 1-inch thick pieces.
Using your fingers, flatten the dough pieces into oval shapes.
Place one cherry in the middle of each oval dough pieces.
Fold together the dough flaps, pinch their ends and between your palms roll into an oval shaped buns.
Place the buns into a pan greased with olive oil lined with parchment paper. Repeat the same steps with the remaining dough. Allow the buns to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
After the buns rise, make the egg wash. Place 1 egg and 1tbsp. of milk into a small bowl and whisk until combined. Brush the buns with the egg wash and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, at 350 F, or until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and allow the buns to cool. You may serve them warm or cold, but warm is enjoyed best.
