Pizza Biscuit Bears

Our Test Kitchen staff set aside the porridge recipes and came up with these charming biscuits that are just right! The cute little bears, which get their personality from pizza toppings, are delicious with warm pizza sauce for dipping.

    We did change this slighty because my kids do not like green peppers. We used a cherry tomato for the nose instead. They LOVED this recipe, it is very good and easy to make.

    not a bad idea but you'd have to slice the biscuit first, fill it and crimp the sides, or put them in the fridge for next time, or eat 'em on the side.

    The recipe only calls for 12 slices of pepperoni and olives, 2 for each bear. There is no "rest" of them.

    What do you do with the reat of the pepperoni and olives do you put them in side the biscuits.

    These could be changed into cats, by changing ear shapes to triangles and adding whiskers.
