Turtle Bread :)

A little while ago, I found the Betty Crocker website.  I now LOVE this website!!  I look there whenever I am in search of a recipe.  It's amazing.
Once I was looking and found the Turtle Bread recipe.  The cute little turtle looked soooo cute!!!  I couldn't wait to try this adorable looking bread.
So I got the recipe and headed to the kitchen!  I was cooking the rest of the dinner as well so I didn't have a whole lot of down time to try and make it perfect.
This is what it is SUPPOSED to look like:

Isn't it cute?
And this is what mine turned out to look like.....

So besides the fact that the head is not  perfectly round and the feet are kinda weird, the bread itself tasted good!
So if you would like this bread recipe, here it is from the Betty Crocker website.

2 1/2to 3 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1package quick active dry yeast
1tablespoon sugar
1teaspoon salt
1/2cup water
1/3cup milk
1tablespoon butter or margarine

1.In large bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups of the flour, the yeast, sugar and salt; set aside.
2.In 1-quart saucepan, heat water, milk and butter over medium heat, stirring occasionally, to 125°F to 130°F; stir into yeast mixture. Stir in egg. Stir in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle. On lightly floured surface, knead dough about 5 minutes or until smooth and springy. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.
3.Lightly grease cookie sheet with shortening or spray with cooking spray. Shape a 2-inch piece of dough into a ball for turtle’s head. Shape 4 walnut-size pieces of dough into balls for feet. Shape 1 walnut-size piece of dough into tail. Shape remaining dough into ball for turtle body; place on cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Attach head, feet and tail by placing 1 end of each under edge of body to secure. Press raisins into head for eyes. Cover and let rise in warm place 20 minutes.
4.Heat oven to 400°F. Make 1/4-inch-deep circular cut around top edge of body, then make crisscross cuts in center to look like a turtle's shell. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
