Set two aside for bear bodies. Cut one of the remaining pieces in half for two heads and the other one into fourteen pieces. Shape all pieces of dough into balls. Place large balls on greased baking sheets for bodies. Place medium balls above for heads. Flatten slightly. Attach small balls for paws, noses, and ears. Cover with towel; let rise for about one hour. Adjust rack one-third up from bottom of oven and preheat oven to 400. Make indentations for ears, eyes, noses, and belly buttons with end of toothpick or point of scissors. Place raisins for eyes, noses, and belly buttons. Brush egg glaze on bears. Bake for 25-30 min.
