Rabbit Rolls n' Bunny Buns Recipe

When we first moved into the neighborhood where I spent my late childhood, we wanted to make an Easter gift for the neighbors, so Mom and I made these little sheep rolls and made fast friends with all the houses on the block. They all wanted the recipe, and I have such fond memories of making and sharing them, I'd love to share with you.
Pull Apart Rabbit Rolls and Bunny Buns

1 pkg each Rhodes or Bridgford Bake and serve rolls, or equivalent (don't get the loaf, get the rolls)
1 Egg
Raisins, currants, or nuts for the eyes

With kitchen sheers, cut each roll in half or quarters (depending on the finished size) and begin to form the body, starting at the center, and adding to the outside. Use larger pieces for the feet and tail, using an entire piece for the head, even combining more than one roll. With extra pieces mold the nose and mouth, placing a currant on the eye.

Brush with egg and bake according to package instructions

I'd love to know if you tried this super easy and highly impressive Easter treat. Send me some pics if you do!

Oh so cute. Almost looks like the Pillsbury dough boy you want to push its tummy lol
I love baking this way.The house always smells good and the stove warms everything up real nice which is great in BC damp weather.
