One of our family's Easter traditions is making yummy bunny-shaped rolls.
I have made these since the kids were very small. The original recipe is on a little piece of paper cut from either a magazine ad or a promotional flyer for Red Star yeast. It has been so long I am not sure! It has just the recipe not even a title so I am not sure the original name of the rolls. We always make these together so every year the kids will ask "when are we going to make the Bunny dough"? Hence our name for them is simply "Bunny Dough"!
I realized that I have only one copy of this recipe (like a lot of our other family favorites). So when I saw that Stampin' Up! had a My Digital Studio template for a recipe book I decided I need to start copying some of our family favorites.
The download is called a Compilation of Recipes. The really cool thing is that it is an 8" X 8" board book. The spacing is already figured out so all I had to do is type in the recipe and then decorate it!
The embellishments are from two of the free CDs available in the Sale-a-bration Catalog. I thought the yellow background paper from the Piece of Cake Ensemble looked like rays of sunshine-- perfect for an Easter Brunch layout. The flowers at the bottom are from the Sprinkled Expression stamp set found on the One Big Sale-a-Bration CD.
Then I added the bunny from the Holiday Blitz stamp set which comes with the original My Digital Studio software. The heart is the Small Heart Punch. Other than that I just changed the colors to fit my color scheme.
The dough can be made the night before, refrigerated and baked the next morning. I often make it, let it rise in a warm place and bake it the same day.
Also I no longer knead it by hand. I let the machine to the work!
To make the bunnies, roll dough into a rope and twist into a bunny shape.
For this shape bunny, I coil the rope into an "S" to form the head and body, then add the ears and tail.
We make a powdered sugar frosting for them- YUM!
I usually make some into eggs as well.
The dough makes wonderful rolls too anytime of year!
