Ingredients:  
2 1/2 - 3 c. all purpose flour
1 pkg. quick-acting active dry yeast
1 T. sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 c. water
1/3 c. milk
1 T. margarine or butter
1 egg
2 raisins

Directions:
Mix 1 1/2 c. of the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in large bowl. Heat water, milk and margarine to 125 to 130; stir into yeast mixture. Stir in egg. Stir in enough of remaining flour to make the dough easy to handle. Sprinkle a surface lightly with flour. Turn the dough onto the surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.

Lightly grease a cookie sheet. Shape a 2" piece of dough into a bal for the head. Shape 4 walnut-size pieces of dough into balls for feet. Shape 1 walnut-size piece of dough into tail. Shame remaining dough into a ball for body. Place on cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Attach head, feet and tail by placing 1 end of each under edge of body to secure. Press raisins into head for eyes. Cover and let rise 20 minutes.

Heat oven to 400. Make crisscross cuts in body 1/4" deep to look like a turtle's shell. Bake until golden brown, 20-25 minutes.

You can make several small roll sized turtles instead of one large turtle.
