These are just adorable! And they look much harder than they really are. I started making these for Easter when my kids were home, now I'll be making them for my grandson. Quick, easy, impressive and inexpensive! A great project to get kids interested in cooking. Wonderful for baby showers, buffets and luncheons. Also adorable floating in a bowl of hot soup or stew! =)
Slightly flatten 12 of the rolls and form them into a teardrop shape. Place on a prepared baking sheet. (I use parchment.)
Pinch the pointed ends to make tails. Press your finger deeply into the rounded end of each teardrop to make a deep hole.
Cut remaining 4 rolls into thirds. Shape each into a ball with a pointed end. Dip pointed end into water and insert it into the deep hole that you made with your finger in the body section for the head.
Brush well with beaten egg. Cover with sprayed saran wrap and allow to rise for 30 minutes. Remove wrap and pinch tails again.
Bake at 350 degrees 15-20 minutes. Cool a bit. Then, with a small sharp knife, make 1-2 small slits and insert almonds for the duck bill.
