Easter Rolls and Menu Plan Monday 4/1

Happy April’s Fools Day!

I wanted to play a prank on you, but I am not that witty and can’t think of anything that has not been done before, so this is just a boring food post.

You’re welcome.

I was, and usually am, in charge of rolls for Easter Dinner, or any dinner.

This year we, well my sister, decided we should have a full turkey dinner for Easter.  During Thanksgiving time we ended up with 3 turkeys, two of them free.

I saw this pin on Pinterest

and thought they were adorable!

The pin says just use a yeast roll recipe, pinch up the ears and poke holes for eyes.

Easy.  Right?

Wrong….

So the link on the pin takes you to someone’s Flickr account and there is just a picture.

To find some directions I Googled ‘Easter bunny rolls’ and found a bread making blog, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes.  What a perfect blog!  I am going to have to go back and search through it, because there is nothing I love more than bread!

Back to the rolls.  They wrote a post about these cute little bunnies, and they claim the above pin is really a COOKIE!

I know! I guess you can’t believe everything to see on the internet…

But I tried anyway, as they also did.

Nailed IT!

However, if you would like to attempt these rolls the people from Bread in 5 give some tips on how to accomplish them.
