Bee Bread

White or Whole Wheat Dough Recipe

  1. Use 12 ounces of dough. For the body: roll a 4-ounce piece into a pear shape. Place on greased baking sheet. For head: shape a 1-ounce piece of dough into a small oval and place next to body.
  2. For eyes: use scissors to make clips on each side of head; place a dried blueberry into each of the clips.
  3. To make wings: roll out four (1-ounce) pieces into teardrop shapes. Place under each side of body overlapping slightly.
  4. Form remaining dough into small ropes for antennae, legs and stinger.
  5. Make shallow cuts across the body to add detail. Cover; let rise 20 minutes. Beat 1 egg and 1 tablespoon water; brush on bee. Sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake at 350°F, 20 minutes or until golden.
