Little Lamb Bread

Finished Lamb Bread

White or Whole Wheat Dough Recipe

  1. Shape 1 pound of dough into 13 uniform balls. Divide 10 balls into fourths and form into 40 smooth balls. Arrange body and top of head on greased baking sheet.
  2. Shape one ball into a flat oval and position for the face. For the eye, clip with scissors and insert a large raisin.
  3. Cut one ball in half. Use one half for ear and other half for tail. Use remaining ball to form legs: make two ropes, fold in half and tuck under body.
  4. Cover; let rise until nearly doubled. Beat together 1 whole egg and 1 tablespoon water. Brush on lamb; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake at 350°F, 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned.
