Easter Bunny Rolls

I wanted to share with you these cute little bunny rolls that I made for our Easter dinner.  I know Easter is already over, but you should make these for your kids (to celebrate spring or something).  They'll love them!

I used my cloud light crescent roll recipe, which is my favorite "special occasion roll recipe".  It's great because you mix the dough up, shape the rolls, then let them rise until you're ready to bake.  They are really fluffy and delicious!  And easy!

Cloud Light "Bunny" Crescent Rolls
Printable Recipe

Ingredients
  • 4 1/2 tsp. (2 packages) yeast
  • 1 1/4 c. water
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 4 1/2 c. flour
Directions
  1. In Kitchenaid mixing bowl, dissolve yeast into 1 1/4 c. warm water, 1/2 c. sugar, 1/2 c. oil.  Mix together and let stand for 10 minutes until yeast is bubbly. 
  2. Mix in beaten eggs. (I use my Kitchenaid white flat beater instead of the dough hook.)
  3. Stir in flour slowly and knead well. Dough will be sticky, so add just enough flour so the dough is manageable.
  4. Separate dough into three sections and set them on a well-floured surface.  Roll each section into a rectangle.  Brush each rectangle with melted butter, if desired.  Cut the rectangles into 1/2" strips lengthwise using a pizza cutter. 
  5. Roll each end of the strips into a circle, so it forms a bunny and lay on greased baking sheet.  Make bunny ears with a small section of a dough strip and attach to the bunny body. 
  6. Cover bunny rolls with a clean towel.  Let bunny rolls rise for at least an hour until doubled in size. 
  7. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

The Best French Bread I've Ever Made

This is the best french bread I've ever made.  I got this recipe from my friend, Nikki, who gave us some of this bread as a thank you for my hubby helping them move a piano.  I remember it being delicious and we gobbled it up fast.  I was intimidated for some reason by the recipe and waited a few years before I made it. We needed some bread for to make some turkey, provolone, avocado sandwiches, so I made some of this bread and it was perfect!  We sliced one loaf like they do at Subway.  Then later I made normal shaped sandwiches with the rest of the bread.  Delicious... light and fluffy and yummy! Update 2/22/12: This is still my favorite bread after making it for a year! It turns out perfect every time and it's gone in a flash! printable recipe French Bread recipe from my friend, Nikki Yield: 2 loaves   Ingredients 2 c. warm water 1 pkg (or 1 heaping Tbsp.) yeast 1/4 c. granulated sugar 1 T. olive oil
