Robin Rolls

White or Whole Wheat Dough Recipe

  1. Roll a 2-2½-ounce piece of dough into a 12"-14" rope.
  2. Make a loop; put one end through center. The long end is the tail; the other end is the head. Place on greased baking sheet.
  3. For tail feathers, cut 4-5 slashes in the widest end and spread out. Shape the other end to resemble a head.
  4. With scissors, cut an opening for the beak; place a slivered almond inside beak. Clip holes for eyes and insert a small piece of raisin. Let rise until puffy. Beat together 1 egg and 1 tablespoon water for egg wash; brush on robins.
