Easter Bunny Biscuits


I love Easter and everything associated with it: the baking, the bunnies and the little Spring lambs; preparing the dinner, the sense of family, celebration and rebirth. Here is a cute little Easter breakfast or brunch idea that kids will love to make for the family (with your help with the oven). If you have nut allergies in the house, just substitute an alternate for the whiskers, or use icing to draw them on. Whatever the case, from our house to yours: Enjoy!

·         Refrigerated biscuit dough or you can make your own [see below]
·         Raisins or currents (for eyes and nose)
·         Slivered almonds (for whiskers)
Each bunny takes 2 refrigerated (or home-made) biscuits. Simply cut one in half, shape slightly and pinch onto the top of the whole biscuit to make the ears. Add raisin/current eyes and nose, and some slivered almonds for whiskers. Bake according to directions on the biscuit package (or below) and there you go! Bunnies for breakfast! Serve with your favorite fruit, jam or jelly.
·         2 c. flour
·         3 tsp baking powder
·         1 tsp salt
·         3/4 c. milk
·         1/4 c. shortening

Mix all ingredients together. Preheat oven (425 
degrees). For biscuits, roll dough and cut with round cookie cutters. For pizza crust, grease your fingers and spread dough on lightly greased baking dish. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until lightly golden.
