Start with Rhodes frozen roll dough.  Each bunny is just one roll.  So put the amount you want on a dish sprayed with baking spray.  Cover with a sheet of plastic wrap that has been sprayed as well.  Let them thaw, but work with the dough while it is still cold, about an hour.

Cut and save a small amount of dough for the tail.  I like to use kitchen scissors.

I like to brush my bunnies (and my rolls) with melted butter after they come out of the oven.  It makes them extra soft and yummy.
