Bunny Buns 2013

This year's Bunny Buns were even better than ever! Here's how to make them:

Buy a bag of frozen roll dough (Look in the freezer section for a bag of individual balls of dough - if you can only find very small Parker House rolls, allow to defrost then fold/knead 2 rolls together to make a soft round shape).

Space the rolls on a cookie sheet with about 4 inches between each roll.  Allow the rolls to defrost and rise.  Shape the the dough to make it oval-shaped. 

To make the ears, angle your scissors at a 45 degree angle. Hold the scissors over the bunny and aim the point of the scissors over the bunny's nose and the handle of the scissors along his back. Move the scissors back an inch and snip two ears into the dough - they should be fairly long, like bunny ears.  Pull the ears up and away to give them some definition.    

To make the cotton tail, pull and twist quarter-size piece of dough in a low area on the back of the bunny.  Bake according to the package directions.  

Once they have cooled, you can use a paint brush and dust edible pink pearl dust onto the ears.  Then add eyes by making 2 dents with the end of the paint brush and press a raisin into each hole. Enjoy!
