Hedgehog Biscuits

April 6, 2010

Hedgehog biscuit

What you need:

  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 (1/4 oz.) package of active dry yeast
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water
  • Raisins
  • 1 beaten egg

What you do:

  1. 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. Put the dough on a floured table and knead. Divide the dough into 8 pieces.
  3. Shape each piece of dough into an oval with a pointed end. Put them on a greased baking sheet.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. Remove the plastic wrap. Brush the dough with beaten egg. Bake at 450° F for 15-20 minutes.

    I’m sad for kids that sit in front of the TV or computer for “fun.” When I was growing up we ran around outside for HOURS!
