Expert Tips

Instead of cutting each piece of biscuit dough in half, let children use cookie cutters to stamp out shapes. Have them use their imaginations with the scraps of dough remaining,making "puzzle pieces," "monsters," "paw prints" and other creations that, for consistency in baking, should be about the same size as the cutouts.

Before baking, brush the top of each biscuit with olive oil or melted butter. Sprinkle with caraway seed or sesame seed.
