Bunny Rolls

2 Tbsp. dry yeast
2 cups warm water
1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. butter
2 1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 c. dried milk
5 c. flour
1 egg
*brush with butter

Combine yeast and water and let stand until yeast begins to bubble (about 5 minutes). Add two c. of flour and the remaining ingredients adn beat until smooth. Add 1 more cup of flour until it is well mixed in (Don't add it all at once, but rather, little by little.) Knead dough until it is smooth. Place dough into a greased bowl and let rise until 3 times it's original size. Pull dough out and let rest for a few minutes. Roll dough and shape (2 large balls and one small ball-per bunny) as needed using remaining flour as needed. Flatten one of the balls and snip ears into it. Attach another large ball to the small ball for the body and tail. Put all components of the bunny together in a greased baking sheet. Let rise for about an hour to an hour and a half. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 min. until golden.

*It's fun to make big ones for a center piece, and put grass around it for Easter dinner.
