Here's a recipe for New York Crumb Buns that I've been working on for years. Having moved from New York to the Ozarks in Missouri, it was out of sheer desperation that I worked on it until I finally got it just the way I wanted it. I hope you enjoy it. Prepare crumb topping at least two hours ahead of time.
I use my bread machine to knead all ingredients. When kneading cycle is finished,
put dough in greased bowl; raise until doubled. On floured surface, roll dough into
rectangle 1/2 inch thick. Move dough to parchment-lined cookie sheet, brush with
milk and sprinkle crumbs on top. Let raise until doubled. Bake in preheated 375
degree F oven, 25-30 minutes. Sift confectioners' sugar over top after cooling.
Crumb Topping: Mix well (I use the food processor). Refrigerate until cold then
break into crumbs. I like to double the crumb recipe and have a lot of topping.
However, too much will inhibit the dough rise.
