Stir in the milk.

Chill the dough for 1 hour or until it is fairly firm.

Roll out the dough to 6 mm/1/4 in thick.

Cut out ten 5 cm/2 in circles, ten 2.5 cm/1 in circles, twenty 2 cm/3/4 in circles and ten 1 cm/1/2 in circles.

Make up the bunnies on a greased baking sheet, using the 5cm/2in circles for the bodies, the 2.5 cm/1 in circles for the heads and the 1 cm/1/2 in circles for the tails.

Shape the 2 cm/3/4 in circles into ovals for the ears.

Coat the bunnies with the lightly beaten egg white and sprinkle with the remaining sugar.

Bake for a further 10 minutes or until the bunnies are golden brown.
