Homemade Easter creatures..

I got convinced to bake with my boy, to overcome I did!

I really had fun baking, regardless the fact that baby G. didn't contribute much to baking at all, he prefered checking out his book about the airport.. :-)

Eventhough my mystical easter creatures don't look too appealing, their flavor was heavenly...

Here the recipe that I used:

Sweet yeast dough creatures

500 gr flour
1,5 teaspoons salt

3 tablespoons sugar
2 packages of vanilla sugar
20 gr yeast
60 gr soft butter
3 dl lukewarm milk
1 whisked egg
1 pop of milk
(raisins, hazelnuts or almond chips for decoration)

Mix everything together and disperse everything for about 10 Minutes until you get a soft and smooth yeast dough. Let it merge for about 2 hours at room temperature until it doubles it size.
Cut the risen dough into equal big pieces (I did a dozen!) then disperse the pieces some more until everything is smooth again (use a little bit of flour so it won't stick to the base). Roll little balls then add to each ball 2 raisins as eyes. Cut 2 "ears" with your scissors. Brush the milk/egg combination all over your little creatures.

When finished, bake for about 20 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius in the lowest crease of your pre-heated oven. Let it then cool on your grid. They are best when eaten when they are still fresh!
