    1. Grease a baking sheet.
    2. Cut off 1/4 of the dough from 1 loaf and form into a pear-shaped ball for the bunny head.
    3. Form the remaining 3/4 loaf into a fat oval shape for the body. Place the body onto the prepared baking sheet and attach the head by pinching the 2 pieces together.

    5. Cut second loaf of dough into 4 equal pieces. Roll 2 pieces into 16-inch ropes. Fold each rope in half, and pinch the ends to the head to form ears.

    7. Cut the remaining dough into 3 pieces. Form 2 pieces into balls and pinch on sides for front paws.
    8. Divide the remaining piece of dough into 3 equal pieces and roll into 1-inch balls. Press the dough balls onto thethe face to form two cheeks and a nose.
    9. Press raisins onto the face to make eyes.
