Easter Bunny dinner rolls

This is a recipe that could be super easy, or a bit harder.  If you want the easy version, defrost some Rhodes frozen bread dough and then follow the directions for forming them into rolls.  A bit harder...make the following rye bread dough and form into rolls.  Either way..delicious and just darling!

Rye bread dough:
1/2 pkg. yeast
1 T. sugar
1 1/8 c. warm water
Combine these ingredients and whisk well.  Add in:
1/8 c. brown sugar
1/8 c. corn oil
1/8 c. molasses
1 T. caraway seeds
1/2 t. salt
Now add
1/2 c. rye flour
1 1/2 C. all purpose flour
Mix well.  Add up to another cup of flour until a soft, kneadable dough is formed.  Knead 6 minutes.
Put into a buttered bowl and let rise for one hour in a warm place.

How to form rolls:
Roll dough out on floured board into a large rectangle. Cut in 1/2 width-wise, and then cut into strips.
Roll each strip into a long log shape.

Shape the log into a U, then twist ends around each other.
This is the bunny with the ears on top.  Roll some small balls and add on the bottom for a bunny tail.
Let rise for one hour.  Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.  Now aren't these just too cute?
