  Active dry yeast 1 Tablespoon
  Warm water 2 Tablespoon (105-115 F)
  Milk 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Butter stick 1
  Sugar 3 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Flour 3 1⁄2 Cup (56 tbs)
  Egg 1
  Glaze 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Egg 1 , beaten with 1 tablespoon water

1 Dissolve yeast in warm water. Set aside for 5 minutes. Heat milk, butter, sugar, and salt to warm (105°-115°F).
2 Combine 2 cups flour, yeast mixture, milk mixture, and 1 egg in bowl. Mix thoroughly.
3 Add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth€”about 10 minutes.
4 Place in greased bowl, turning to coat top. Cover; let rise in warm place until double€”about 1 hour.
5 Punch down dough. Divide into 12 equal balls about 2 1/2 inches across. Cut each ball in half. Flatten one of the halves and shape into an oval for the body. Divide the other half of dough in two; make a round ball for head. With remaining dough make pencillike ropes 4 inches long. Cut in half for 2 arms. Press head and arms to body. (There are no legs.) Press raisins or currants deeply in place for the eyes and nose.
6 Let rise in warm place until double€”about 30 minutes. Make glaze and brush on buns.
7 Bake in a preheated 350°F oven about 15€”20 minutes or until done. Cool on wire rack.
