Wilton 3-D Mini Skull Pan

I used my favorite basic yeast dough to make these delicious rolls and I floated them in a yummy bowl of blood — okay just kidding! These skull shaped bread rolls are floating in a to die for bowl of Tomato Basil Soup! This spooky meal won’t disappoint!

Basic Yeast Dough Recipe

1 pkg dry yeast
1 c Warm water
3 tb Sugar
2 tb Butter
1/2 ts Salt
3 c All-purpose flour (use up to 3 1/2 cups if needed)
1 egg

Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water, let stand 5 minutes (or until you see bubbles). In food processor, or mixer add butter, 3 cups flour, salt and mix. Next add yeast mixture, egg. Mix to form a soft dough (about 45 seconds in the food processor with a dough blade and about 2 minutes in a mixer. Spray hands with cooking spray, then remove dough from mixer. Place dough in a well-greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts for about 45 mins to an hour or until doubled in size, or cover and refrigerate dough up to 5 days (If refrigerated, let return to room temperature before proceeding). Punch dough down, with lightly sprayed hands shape dough and bake. This dough also make delicious cinnamon rolls. Adapted from Southern Living

Lightly spray pan with cooking spray. Place about a 1/4 cup dough in each skull face.

Allow dough to rise again, about 30 – 45 minutes. It will almost double in size. Place remaining dough in the refrigerator while these four rolls rise and bake. Bake rolls at 400 degrees  for about 10 – 12 minutes. Repeat the process with remaining dough. Don’t worry about letting the dough  in the refrigerator come to room temperature, it isn’t in there that long.
