hedgehog biscuit

These spiky hedgehog biscuits are almost too cute to eat!

What You Need

  • 1 beaten egg
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Raisins
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 ¼ cups warm water
  • 1 (¼ oz.) package of active dry yeast

What You Do

  1. Make Dough
    In a large bowl, stir together both kinds of flour, yeast and salt. Add oil, honey and warm water. Mix until you have a stiff dough.
  2. Divide Dough and Put on Baking Sheet
    • Put the dough on a floured table and knead. Divide the dough into 8 pieces.
    • Shape each piece of dough into an oval with a pointed end. Put them on a greased baking sheet.
  3. Snip Dough Balls
    Wash a pair of safety scissors in hot, soapy water. Use the scissors to make snips all over the dough balls. The raised points will look like spines on a hedgehog. Push raisins into the dough for eyes and nose.
  4. Let Dough Stand
    Cover the whole baking sheet with plastic wrap. Let it stand in a warm place for 30 minutes. The dough balls will double in size!
  5. Bake Biscuits
    Remove the plastic wrap. Brush the dough with beaten egg. Bake at 450° F for 15–20 minutes.hedgehog biscuit
