The breakfast in the Bird Breakfast Bird Feeder is strictly for the birds -- don't you taste it!
What You'll Need:
- 2 cups biscuit baking mix
- 2 tablespoons margarine
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
- Measuring cup and spoons
- Mixing bowl
- Mixing spoon
- Rolling pin
- Cookie cutters
- Baking sheet
- Small saucepan
- Pastry brush
- Cooling rack
Step 1: Ask an adult to preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Add enough water (just a few tablespoons) to the baking mix to form a soft dough.
Step 2: Roll out the dough to 3/4-inch thickness, and cut it into shapes with the cookie cutters.
Step 3: Using a spatula, put the shapes on a baking sheet. Use the straw to punch a hole in the top of each cookie.
Step 4: Ask an adult to melt the margarine. Brush the melted margarine over the dough. Sprinkle the seeds onto the dough, and press them in firmly with a fork.
Step 5: Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until light brown. Remove cookies with a spatula, and place them on a cooling rack.
Step 6: When the cookies are cool, thread brightly colored ribbon through the holes. Hang the bird snacks in a tree. Now wait for the birds to enjoy their breakfast.
(Note: If birds don't eat the biscuits right away, check after a few days to be sure the biscuits aren't moldy. If they are, remove them from the tree and make fresh ones.)
