Supplies Needed to Make Heart Shaped Biscuits
There are only a few supplies and ingredients needed to make these biscuits. You will love how easy and straightforward this is to accomplish. From just a very simple task I can get smiles from my kids as I place these biscuits on the table. As a busy mom, this is what I look for … a simple easy prep for food that brings a smile to my son’s faces. It’s a win-win!
You will need:
- Pillsbury Grands Flaky biscuits (or other refrigerated premade biscuits in a can) Obviously homemade biscuits would work too, try out my recipe: Quick Sweet Biscuits with Cream and Honey
- a heart cookie cutter, preferably near the size of a flattened biscuit
- red sugar sprinkles
- maple or strawberry syrup (optional)
- honey (optional)
- baking pan or cookie sheet
Yes! That’s it! It’s such a simple idea. You can go wrong here and you could get the kids to help. Having fun and helping in the kitchen is great for kids! Make your Valentine’s day simple with a very simple prep heart treat.
Directions for Making these easy Heart Shaped biscuits
Open the biscuit can and place the biscuits on the cookie sheet spread out as best as you can. Use your hand to flatten all the biscuits. Press the heart shaped cookie cutter into the biscuits to cut a heart shape. I cut it all the way through and the biscuit edges tend to stay with the heart as the bread expands while it bakes.
Sprinkle each biscuit with the desired red sprinkles. I use the sugar type sprinkles. Cook until golden, according to directions on the biscuit container (often around 13-18 minutes).
Pull biscuits out of the oven and top with butter, if desired. Drizzle honey or maple syrup over the biscuits to make them extra yummy.
Store the leftover biscuits in an airtight container to keep them fresh.
When to enjoy…
These biscuits are great for breakfast, but honestly, they would work for any meal of the day or even a snack. My youngest loved to enjoy them in the morning with maple syrup, like a pancake meal. I did save the leftovers and they were great the next day too.
Enjoy these biscuits within a day or so of making them because they tend to get too hard if you wait to consume them beyond that timeframe. Fresh is best here like with most food.
Heart Shaped Biscuits
- 8 biscuits refrigerated premade biscuits
- 2 Tbsp red sugar sprinkles
- 3 Tbsp honey optional
- 3 Tbsp maple syrup optional
- 4 Tbsp butter to top the biscuits once cooked
Great memories can happen with holiday-themed foods and this one is so easy to do it takes mere minutes. This simple idea can easily be carried over to other holidays by using other cookie cutters for Christmas, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, and Halloween. In this easy way, you can put a smile on your kids’ faces easily and simply by dressing up biscuits. Kids love this kind of stuff! Any added way to celebrate a holiday is a total bonus and adds to the holiday spirit.
Doing this for a birthday is also a fun idea if you find a cookie cutter in the shape of a favorite activity your child enjoys such as one related to a sport or an animal-shaped cookie cutter.
Vary the color of sprinkles for fun as well. Match up your sprinkles to go with the specific holiday.
Try adding other things as well such as raisins, dried cranberries, or press chocolate chips into the biscuits. Topping the biscuits with coconut or frosting, or even different flavored syrups can be tasty and fun too.
Making the biscuits into an egg sandwich is another fun holiday idea.
