Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuit Bears and Bunnies #111

When it comes to Pillsbury ready made doughs, the possibilities for using them in bentos are endless.  I made these bears and bunnies using Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits.  To make them, flatten out a biscuit and spoon some of the filling into the center.  Bring the edges to the center and crimp together.  Roll gently into a ball and place the crimped side down on your prepared pan.  I used a silpat, but parchment paper works just as well.  From another biscuit take small pieces to roll into balls (for the bears) or oblong (for the bunnies) shapes for the ears.  Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 12 minutes until golden.

The filling contains rotisserie chicken, sun dried tomatoes, Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses.

Bears and bunnies before baking.

After baking and cooling, I stuck in jeweled picks for the bunnies’ noses and hat picks for the bear’s noses.  If you don’t have picks, just use raisins, a chocolate chips, or something similar for the noses.  Then I used the 1/2 inch sized sugar eyes and attached them with a tiny dab of peanut butter.

    Those bunnies and bears look so wide-awake it’s hilarious!

  3. I love this! Again, the Pillsbury thing. So far no luck in our local grocery stores. Might try another city but there are no Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits to be found here! The filling in this one is amazing.. These are almost too cute to bite into…

    • Thanks Chantal! :) Do you guys have any kind of ready made dough? Even frozen bread or pizza dough would work, just need to adjust a little on the cooking times.

  4. You make me want to bake! And I have a fear of dough! LOL

    Super-duper ideas and so cute too!
