Bread Snails…so cute!

The dough
300 ml milk (approx 1 1/4 c)
2-3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon salt
500 gr flour (approx 2 1/4 c)
2 tablespoons sugar
and a half teaspoon of dry yeast.
The tongues:
Sausages or frankfurters, depends on your preferences.

Knead dough and let it rise. I would usually use the bread-maker.

For the construction of the bread snails I would use medium sized funnels covered in oil olive and nicely follow through with the pre made stripes of dough. Add separately the eyes and little snail hands. For the eyes just take a small piece of dough and make tiny eyeball and for the tiny hands use a small strip of dough and slice one end into two. Cover with egg for smooth finish. Bake 15-30 min depending on the oven to golden and put a piece of precooked sausage inside for the tongue. Once you pull them out of the oven coat them lightly with oil.
