    Turtle Melonpan step 1

    1 Weigh 12 x 40g of the bread dough. The remaining bread dough will be used for the body parts
    Let them proof for 15mins
    Meanwhile, remove the cookie dough from the fridge. Put on a floured surface
    Divide into 12 pieces that are about 30g each
    Roll them into a bowl and between two sheets of clingwrap flatten into circles that are 9cm in diameter
    Place each disk between lightly floured clingwrap and return to the fridge
    Grab the 12 x 40g bread doughs and roll into balls. This will be used for the body
    With the reserved bread dough, make the body by making
    12 x 10g balls for the head 
    44 x 3g balls for the legs and
    12 x 2g balls for the tail
    Assemble the head, legs, and tail on a greaseproof paper like the picture above
    Grab the cookie doughs out of the fridge. Wrap the cookie dough around the body bread dough. If the cookie dough is too sticky, rub some cake flour on it
    Place the body on top of the body parts making sure that they stick to the body. We used raisins to make the eyes
    Let them proof for another 15mins
    Bake for 10mins at 180 degrees Celsius
