Hedgehogs Turtles and Snails Animal Shaped Dinner Rolls
- 1 large egg plus enough water to measure 1 cup
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
- 3 cups bread flour
- 3 Tbs. Nonfat dry Milk
- 3 Tbs. sugar
- 2 tsp. Bread Machine Yeast
- raisins or currents
Add all of the ingredients (except for raisins/currents) in the order recommended by manufacturer of your bread machine (usually wet ingredients followed by dry ingredients and ending with the yeast). Set the machine to dough setting. When complete, remove dough from machine and allow to rest, covered for 5 minutes.
Divide dough into 16 pieces. Form into desired animal shapes and add raisin/currents for eyes and nose (I try and push the raisins in far so they don’t pop out during rising/baking). Place on a silicone mat or lightly greased baking sheet. Cover lightly and place in a warm, draft-free place and allow to rise for another 30-60 minutes.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 17 minutes or until golden brown.

Hi, I have a hedgehog website and these are just too cute. I hope you don't mind but I've linked from my site to your webpage?
If you don't like it I can take it down?
These little rolls are so adorable! I stuffed some crescent dough with ham and cheese and make a little bento lunch with the hedgehogs. I also made some pepperoni pizza snails I plan to use on Friday. I posted them on my blog and linked back here. I hope that's ok.
Thanks for the fab tutorial.

Way too cute! I bet the grandkids would adore those.
oh my goodness those are so cute. I made bred in the shape of a reindeer one year for Christmas. I think it was the Rhodes website that gave directions for making all kinds of stuff out of frozen bread dough.

Too cute! Since my kids are grown, I have not done that in a long time. I look forward to when my Little Darling starts eating solids and I can create fun food for little ones again!
Those are absolutely adorable. You're right — they ARE almost too cute to eat!
OMG, how adorable for kids – they would love this
