This week we are continuing on with Halloween themed treats with these fun little Witch Hat Biscuits.
I don’t use pre-made items too often but sometimes you just want some biscuits but don’t have the time to make the dough, knead, roll, cut and bake. Therefore, Grand’s biscuits sometimes grace our table. But never have they graced our table in such a fun, creative and delicious way! I think I will be baking up our biscuits like this all the time.
To make these cuties, you flatten your biscuits a bit so that you are able to cut them with a cookie cutter of your choice. The original recipe was called Bat Wing Biscuits and used a bat shaped cookie cutter but because I didn’t have one, I switched it up to a witch hat. What makes this recipe especially great is that it can be used throughout the year. Christmas trees, stars for New Year’s, hearts for Valentine’s Day…you get the picture. Or just follow the recipe with regular ‘ole circles.
They are baked part of the way, split open, slathered with a cheesy, butter mixture then baked until golden. These biscuits really are a great, simple way to round out any spooky Halloween meal.
