Bunny Buns

My bunny bun is being coy.  Look at this little sweetheart peeking at us over the plate.  Last year I made these simple bunny-shaped rolls for a large family Easter in Florida (we were all on vacation together) and they were a hit!

I am showing you a photo a few days early in case you want to make some for your Easter party.  Buy a bag of frozen roll dough (Look in the freezer section for a bag of individual balls of dough).  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.  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 make the eyes by pressing two raisins deep into the face of the bunny. Enjoy!
