Cheese Jack O' Lanterns

5 to 5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 envelope FLEISCHMANN'S RapidRise Yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/3 cup cheese powder from package of macaroni and cheese
1 1/2 cups milk
1 (8-ounce) jar processed cheese sauce
1 large egg
1 egg white
1 tablespoon poppy seeds

In a large bowl, combine 1 3 / 4 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, salt, and cheese powder. Heat milk and cheese sauce until very warm (120 to 130F) Gradually add to dry ingredients. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a stiff dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Divide dough into 5 equal pieces; set aside a 1-inch square from each. Roll each piece to oval to resemble a pumpkin. With side of wooden spoon, make 4 symmetrical curved creases from top to bottom. Place 1-inch square on top of pumpkin as stem. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.

Brush surface with egg white; sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake at 375 F for 20 to 25 minutes or until done. Remove from sheets; cool on wire racks.

Makes 5 Jack O' Lanterns
