sugared spring biscuits

filed under: Bread on April 3, 2014

There is really nothing better than a lazy weekend morning with the family.  I love waking up a few minutes before everyone else and starting a big hot breakfast.

What I love even more is seeing the smiling faces emerge from their bedrooms when they start to smell the delicious aroma of fresh baked goods.

  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands Biscuits
  • Sanding sugars in pink yellow, blue, green
  • bundt pan
  1. Remove biscuits from can and place on clean surface. One at a time, dip biscuits into sanding sugar. Two biscuits will go into each color.

  2. Place sugar covered biscuits into a well prepared bundt pan.
  3. Bake for 12-14 minutes at 325 degrees in a convection oven, or 350 degrees in a regular oven.
  4. Remove from oven, let cool for a few minutes, then serve. (Can be served immediately, but they are very hot, so be careful with kids!)



Pastel Sugared Biscuits

So while I want to make sure I am making something easy enough, mostly I want to make something that looks pretty.  I can’t help it!  Even better when it represents the beautiful pastel and white colors that we so often associate with Easter.   I think that Easter is my favorite holiday!

What’s even better is when I can put something together really quickly, and then sit back and enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee.

It’s all about priorities.

Pastel Sugared Biscuits


To make this easy and fun Easter breakfast start with fun pastel colored sanding sugar. (I got all of mine at Target for under $4)

1 can of Pillsbury Grands Biscuits

bundt pan

I poured about 1/4 cup of sanding sugar into a bowl.  I then opened my  Pillsbury biscuits and removed the biscuits from the can.  There are 8 biscuits in each can, so I made two of each color.

Simply place the biscuits in the color of choice, then rotate it onto the sanding sugar until every bit of the biscuit is covered.

Next, place all the biscuits into a well prepared bundt pan (I sprayed mine with baking spray) and bake for about 12-14 minutes.

Remove biscuits from the oven, allow to cool for about five minutes, then serve on a pretty cake stand or plate.

We enjoyed the biscuits the best when they are still warm!

      Thank you so much Chichi! It’s is still winter here, with 6-18 inches of snow headed our way… so I will take a spot of Springtime Color anywhere I can get it! 🙂 Hope your day is blessed!
