Little children are usually fascinated with outdoor creatures and insects. So I served sandwiches shaped and decorated to resemble turtles for a party I gave to welcome my new baby nephew. A delicious ham filling bakes right inside the biscuit dough. -Kendra Barclay, De Kalb, Illinois

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 22, 2013

"Ok I did a different version too for the kids. I used sliced hot dogs instead of ham, with one section as the head. After baking I used celery slices as the tail and feet. Big hit."
