Eggless Bunny Dinner Rolls

For this month's Baking Eggless Challenge Priya of Enveetu Kitchen suggested Amazing Dinner Rolls from cooking classy. Even for the Baking Partners challenge we baked bread this month. So this month my house is full of freshly baked bread's aroma and it is wonderful. I have made some dinner rolls in the past and have tried out various shapes for the challenge. So I didn't want to repeat the shapes. When I was going through FB, I saw these cute bunny shapes on RecipE Book Page. I was making these rolls while PK returned from office. He asked me whether they are piggy rolls. I was furious but then I can't blame him, right? Sruti was off to dance class and when she returned, I showed her the rolls and asked what she thinks of them. Out came the reply- They look like rabbits mom.. I was so happy for at least she was able to detect the rabbits in my creation.. As for the taste and texture of the rolls, they were awesome. So soft and fluffy, we liked the rolls very much.
