DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all dry ingredients together except the 3 - 4 1/2 cups of flour.
  • In a small pan, heat the milk, the water, and the butter. Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture.
  • Beat well.
  • Mix in the eggs and 1 1/2 cups of flour. Beat well.
  • Put in the rest of the flour, little by little.
  • Knead the mixture on a floured board for 9 - 10 minutes.
  • Put the dough in a greased bowl and allow it to rise until it has doubled in size (about an hour and a half at sea level).
  • Punch the dough down and reshape it with some "bone" shapes on top to decorate it.
  • Let it rise another hour.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 40 minutes.
  • After baking, sprinkle it with confectioner's sugar and colored sugar.
  • Note the number of servings is hard to caculate because of the ability to mold into different shapes for each serving. I am taking a sheer guess and making it eight.
