I saw this owl recipe from Pillsbury and thought it would be fun to make for the kids! With store-bought croissant (or crescent) dough, the owls were very easy to make. I changed up the recipe a little to make the owl croissants savory, instead of sweet, by omitting the cinnamon and sugar. Instead I lightly brushed the tops with melted butter mixed with a little bit of garlic powder. Finally, after they were completely cooled, I topped the owls with cheese and olives for the eyes and beaks.
The garlicky owl croissants made a great side for the chili along with a sweet Clementine. Since the chili was loaded with veggies, I didn’t feel the need to put a side like I usually do.
