Bunny Buns (Easter Treats)

Next on our list for the Easter Egg Hunt was a fun treat Bunny Buns that I found on Melissa's Cuisine. These turned out so cute, now mine were a little on the fluffy bunny side ... but that is the way this lady rolls ... lol. No literally it was my rolling technique didn't make them skinny enough .. hehehe (what a little baking humor didn't kill anyone). 


These were pretty easy to make and didn't take to much time.  I thought since they weren't something decorated they may not be a big hit. I was happy to see almost all were gone with in 20 minutes!  They were so yummy I probably could eat them all day long ... you know if I didn't want my jeans to ever zip up again!

Makes 14 buns

Ingredients:
2 cups milk
1 heaping Tablespoon yeast
5-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup vegetable shortening
1/4 cup butter, melted

1.  Pour milk into a small microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute, until warm.

2.  Sprinkle the yeast on the warm milk and set it aside to proof while you mix the other ingredients.

3.  In the bowl of your stand mixer, use the paddle attachment to mix the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar.

4.  Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

5.  Pour the milk and yeast mixer into the dough and mix using the dough attachment until the dough forms a ball and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.


6.  Divide the dough into 15 equal sized pieces.

7.  Roll each piece of dough into a long rope (like you're making pretzels).  Set aside 1 strip to use for the bunny tails.

8.  Form a bunny with each piece of dough by twisting the top of the dough together and leaving a "keyhole" at the bottom.

9.  Divide the reserved dough strip into 14 equal pieces and roll them into balls to use for the bunnytails.  Place the tails in the opening at the bottom of the buns.  

10.  Cover the bunnies with plastic wrap and set aside to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.

11.  Remove the plastic wrap and bake the buns at 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes, until golden brown.

12.  Brush the hot rolls with melted butter after removing from the oven
