Bunny Tail Rolls

Does this look like a bunny with a tail?  Hopefully.  My boys called them "bunny bums" (which is so typical of boys), but I thought they would be fun since Easter is coming.  I found the idea at Kara's.  You can use whatever dough you want, frozen or homemade, it's the shape that makes them fun.

2 C. milk
1/2 c. butter
2 t. salt
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. sugar
2 T. yeast
2 eggs, beaten
8-10 cups flour

* Heat milk, butter, salt, water and sugar in saucepan on stove until warm.  Pour into mixer.  Add yeast and eggs and let stand until frothy.  Add enough flour to make a soft dough (in my Bosch mixer that is when the doughs stops sticking to the sides).  Let knead in mixer for 1 minute.  Dump into greased bowl and let rise until double in size.

* Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Pinch off a piece of dough and roll into a rope, about 6 inches long, on a greased counter top.  Then grab one end of the rope and loop it over the top of the other end, to form the ears.  Place on a greased cookie sheet.  Then pinch off a small piece of dough, form it into a ball and set it in the middle of the bunny body, to form the tail.  Let raise until double in size.  Bake for abt. 14 minutes or until light brown.  Brush with butter as soon as you remove them from the oven.
