Day 8: Biscuit Blossoms with The Freshman Cook!

Our last day brings us right up to Mother’s Day weekend! Teri from The Freshman Cook is here to show us how to make Biscuit Blossoms! Please go to her blog site and show her a little blog love: http://www.thefreshmancook.com/. Enjoy!

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and if you are looking for something sweet and special to serve for breakfast or brunch, Biscuit Blossoms are your answer! They are simple and quick to make, and you might just have most of the ingredients already in your fridge! The blossoms are made from Honey Crescents. I used strawberry yogurt for the filling, topped it with whipped cream, shaved milk chocolate, and a strawberry. See what I mean, simple and quick! Oh, and this is even better~make the biscuits the day before you are serving. Put them in sealed container to keep them fresh. That way on the day you are serving them, you can put them all together while your whipping cream is whipping!
