Easter Bunny Rolls

These cute little Easter bunny rolls are perfect for Easter breakfast or brunch. They are fun to make, delicious to eat and just darn cute to look at!

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 3/4 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Melted butter

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, dissolve yeast in water.
  2. Add milk, sugar, shortening, egg, celery seed, sage, salt, nutmeg and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic; about 6-8 minutes.
  3. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down; let rest 10 minutes.
  4. Divide dough into 24 pieces. For each bunny, roll one piece of dough into a 20-in. rope. Cut rope into one 10-in. piece, one 5-in. piece, two 2-in. pieces and one 1-in. piece. Coil 10-in. piece for body; place on a greased baking sheet. Coil 5-in. piece for head; place next to body. Form ears from the 2-in. pieces and tail from the 1-in. piece; add to bunny. Pinch and seal pieces together. Repeat, placing bunnies 2 in. apart on the baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 25 minutes.
  5. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with melted butter. Cool on wire racks.
