Makes 2 large bears.
Place warm water in large warm bowl. Sprinkle in yeast; stir until
dissolved. Add warm milk, butter, sugar, salt, and 2 cups all-purpose
flour; blend well. Stir in 2 eggs, whole wheat flour, and enough remaining
all-purpose flour to make stiff batter. Grease top; cover tightly with
plastic wrap. Refrigerate 2 to 24 hours.
Remove from refrigerator. Punch dough down. Remove dough to lightly floured
surface. Divide dough into 4 equal portions; set aside 2 portions. Shape 1
portion into ball for body. Place on large greased baking sheet; flatten
slightly. Divide 1 portion in half; break off 3/4-inch piece, and shape
into ball for nose. Shape remaining piece into ball for head. Attach head
to body; pinch to seal. Attach nose to head; pinch to seal. Divide
remaining half of portion into 6 equal pieces. Shape into balls, and attach
to body and head to form paws and ears; pinch to seal. Press date pieces or
raisins into dough for eyes and buttons. Repeat with remaining portions.
Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 40
to 60 minutes.
Beat remaining egg with 1 tablespoon water; brush over dough. Redefine
shapes, if necessary. Bake at 350?F for 25 minutes or until golden. Remove
from sheets; let cool on wire racks.
