Clean the rabbits, removing all hair and fat. Cut into serving pieces.
Place the rabbits in a large stock pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil.
Add the onions, bacon, salt, and pepper. Cover tightly and simmer until tender.
Remove the rabbits from the broth and place in a baking dish.
Thicken the broth with flour, using 2 tablespoons for each cup of liquid. Pour the thickened broth over the rabbits.

Place the dough over the baking dish, cutting slits to allow the steam to escape.
