I'm lonesome for spring, so today I began playing with a bird theme for Susan's Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch. I remembered seeing darling heart-shaped biscuits for Valentine's Day at Jain's blog, Once In A Blue Moon, and I was inspired to make "bird biscuits," using canned biscuits.
"A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song."
-- Chinese Proverb
"The bluebird carries the sky on his back."
--Henry David Thoreau
"It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds."
"Simple Bird Biscuits"
- canned biscuits (I used Pillsbury Grands)
- bird-shaped cookie cutter
- 1/4 stick melted butter
- pastry brush
- chopped parsley
- chocolate dot (for the eyes)
Procedure: Dust a little flour onto a sheet of waxed paper. Use a rolling pin to gently flatten biscuits (roughly the size of your cookie cutter). Bake 350 degrees for 10 minutes or when browned.
Remove from oven. Brush biscuits with melted butter. Press chocolate eye into the appropriate spot. Garnish with parsley.
