I remember making Turtle Bread with my mom when I was a little girl.  It ends up looking sooo cute and it tastes great too!

2 1/2 to 3 cups of all-purpose flour
1 package of quick-acting active dry yeast
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of water
1/3 cup of milk
1 tablespoon of margarine or butter
1 egg
2 raisins

1.)  Mix 1 1/2 cups of the flour, the yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl.

2.) Heat water, milk and margarine to 125* to 130*; stir into yeast mixture.
Stir in egg.  Stir in enough of remaining flour to make the dough easy to handle.

3.)  Sprinkle a surface lightly with flour.  turn the dough into the surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.  Cover and let rest 10 minutes.

4.)  Lightly grease a cookie sheet.  Shape a 2-inch piece of dough into a ball for 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 a ball for 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 for 20 minutes.

5.)  Heat the oven to 400*.  Make crisscross cuts in body, 1/4 inch deep, to look like a turtle’s shell.  Bake until golden brown, 20 – 25 minutes.
Makes 1 turtle bread.
