Orange-Glazed Bunny Rolls
Total TimePrep: 45 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. + cooling
I make these every year! I'm allergic to oranges, so I make a plain glaze and it is delightful!
These are delicious and the dough is so easy and soft while kneading. I made this with the Pork Roast dinner from the same issue.
We love this delicious dough. Because I always use a type of Instant Yeast, I add it to the mix along with the first 3-cup addition of flour. I've never made the bunny shapes but divide the dough into 12 equal pieces and roll each into a rope; then coil the rope into a round or a figure 8 shape. I love my home-made marmalade added to the frosting that tops them. Delish! Sometimes I add 1 cup of chocolate chips during my last two minutes of kneading and just leave them unfrosted. I haven't done them with raisins yet but know those are in our future! These rolls are so tender and flavorful (and freeze really well without the frosting). Yum!
I made these for Easter and everyone loved them. Very addicting!
These were very tasty. They didn't need the glaze on top. Everyone enjoyed the orange flavor.
I just finished making these for my grandsons; however, my husband devoured one before the glaze was added. With two packets of yeast, I had a lot of dough volume, and my finished bunnies were much larger than those pictured. Next time, I will divide the dough logs even more so they are skinnier and not as bulky after dough rises the second time. I think I could yield 18 to 22 bunnies out of one recipe. For the glaze, I incorporated Srotbart's review by using orange juice, but also used Marmalade, which gave the glaze lots of fresh citrus flavor. I had some orange zest left over that I had frozen, but will use orange zest in the glaze instead of the Marmalade. Happy Easter and Happy Spring!

I halved the recipe and made the dough in my bread maker. Had to use all water because of severe lactose intolerance. Made 10 yummy bow knots, didn't bother topping them, and they were delish!
Very yummy! I didn't have any marmalade, or OJ, so I simply increased my liquids and added pure orange extract. It turned out yummy - probably not quite as good as the recipe, but definitely worked in a pinch! Thanks for sharing!
