I was looking for a fun project that Joey and I could make for his grandmothers and great-grandmother for Mother’s Day. I came across this recipe for Birdseed Biscuits in Family Fun Magazine. Since our families love our feathered friends, I thought this would be the perfect hand-made gift!
And, since we had to mix the “biscuits” and bake them, I thought I would share our experience on my blog!
Compliments on It’s a Keeper
3/4 cup birdseed
2 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp water
3/4 cup water
Assorted metal cookie cutters
Preheat oven to 170 degrees. Evenly coat the inside of your cookie cutters with oil. In a medium bowl, mix together flour and water until combined. The mixture should be somewhat sticky. Add birdseed and mix until combined.
Fill cookie cutters with birdseed mixture. Cut straws into thirds. Place a straw through the birdseed mixture (see photo). This will allow a place to place a string to hand the biscuit.
Bake at 170 degrees for 1 hour. Cool completely. Remove straw and place string through hole to create a hanger.
Is it a Keeper?
We definitely had a great time mixing up the biscuits and filling the cookie cutters! I’m not sure yet, how they turned out…they’re still baking! I’ll be sure to report back on our results though!
PS…we altered the recipe a bit…I added an extra tablespoon of flour because the mixture was not sticky enough.
Happy Mother’s Day!
