Pig Buns How-To

Who knew that one simple can of dough could yield all this cuteness? The Pillsbury kitchens armed themselves with a container of Pillsbury refrigerated country Italian bread (you can also use crusty French loaf), poppy seeds and a lot of imagination to create this adorable oinker.

Here’s how you can do it at home:
Cut the dough crosswise into 9 slices. Place 6 of the slices on a cookie sheet; cut each of the remaining 3 slices into 6 triangle-shaped pieces, like a pie.
Roll 6 of the triangle-shaped pieces into small balls. Place 1 ball in the center of each dough slice on the baking sheet; flatten slightly to form noses.
Pinch 2 of the remaining triangle-shaped pieces onto the top of each dough slice to form the ears.
If you want to give the rolls a nice sheen, brush them with beaten egg white. Then with a toothpick, poke 2 holes in each nose for the nostrils and 2 holes above each nose for the eyes. Dip the toothpick into the beaten egg white, then in the poppy seeds. (The egg white helps the seeds stick to the toothpick.) Insert a few poppy seeds in each hole.

Now they’re ready to bake! Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
