Three Bears Bread

The other morning Ella brought me one of her Highlights High Five magazines (LOVE the magazine and HIGHLY recommend it!) asking if we could make "this":

I needed to make a loaf of bread anyway, so I agreed to make them. Getting her to understand that we need to mix, rest and rise, form, rest and rise, bake and THEN eat was not so easy. But we managed. I used Megan's Real Lovin' Bread recipe and made half the dough into a loaf and the other half in to three bears. We used pecan bits for the eyes as I didn't have raisins. Use half the dough for the 3 bodies then half of the rest for the heads. Divide the rest in to thirds and make 6 balls out of each third for the paws, feet, and ears. Let rise for an hour and bake at 365 for 15 minutes or so.

The original directions call for a frozen loaf of bread from the store so you can do that if making bread isn't your thing. Ella was beyond excited and thrilled with the end result. Plus you get some really cute bread to munch on!
