Our church has a kid magazine that MG receives every month called The Friend. In the April 2011 issue there was a recipe for Bunny Buns. MG insisted we make them. They are a lot of fun to make with a child and easy to adapt to egg and nut free. You can follow the original recipe in the link above our our modified version below.
Dough read to rise.
Covered Dough. I warmed mine next to the dishwasher to help it rise on a cold day.
Dough doubled and ready to be punched down. A fun job for a child to help with.
MG punching the dough.
The dough rolled out and cut in strips ready to be rolled into 'snakes'.
MG was in charge of making the small balls.

The end product is not only adorable but delicious! See my Mom's White Frosting recipe below.
