Physical Challenge:
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Raisins
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 ¼ cups warm water
  • 1 (¼ oz.) package of active dry yeast
Make Dough

In a large bowl, stir together both kinds of flour, yeast and salt. Add oil, honey and warm water.  Mix until you have a stiff dough.

Divide Dough and Put on Baking Sheet
  • Put the dough on a floured table and knead. Divide the dough into 8 pieces.
  • Shape each piece of dough into an oval with a pointed end. Put them on a greased baking sheet.
Snip Dough Balls

Wash a pair of safety scissors in hot, soapy water. Use the scissors to make snips all over the dough balls. The raised points will look like spines on a hedgehog. Push raisins into the dough for eyes and nose.

Let Dough Stand

Cover the whole baking sheet with plastic wrap. Let it stand in a warm place for 30 minutes. The dough balls will double in size!

Bake Biscuits

Remove the plastic wrap. Brush the dough with beaten egg. Bake at 450° F for 15–20 minutes.
