    LUv 2 BaKE's Note:

    These hot cross buns shaped as bunnies are very fun for the kids, and very easy to shape. My mom always makes these for us for breakfast on Easter morning. She used to ice our initial with icing on the stomach of the bunny. The glaze in this recipe is optional - we never bother. NOTE: rising time is not included in prep/cooking time. **I have changed the # of bunnies - after making them this year I realized they made a lot more then I remembered!
