Recipes Kids Can Dough

By Bethany Booth

Pop! A can of biscuit dough opens and my kids come running for some kitchen fun. My girls love to use their little rolling pins to help make Mini-Pizzas or just use their hands and creativity while forming Painted Dough Sculptures and Baked Sugar Doughnuts and Bite-Sized Churros guarantee grins at breakfast.

There are so many inventive ways to encourage little helpers in the kitchen with refrigerated biscuit dough. It is a great way to keep them occupied while mom works in the kitchen. With little or no prep time and minimal clean up, you can pop open some family fun in the kitchen anytime. Try some of these ideas:

Baked sugar doughnuts

1 7.5 ounce can refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar

Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Separate dough into 10 biscuits; flatten each to a 2 1/2 inch round. Use a 1-inch biscuit cutter to cut a hole in the center of each round. Dip all sides of doughnuts and holes into butter, then into sugar. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.
