making bird seed biscuits...

the elves have been at work this morning, making bird seed biscuits as a present for the birds. We made ours with some lard, a packet of wild bird seed and a few oats and raisins. All we do is melt the lard, mix the dry ingredients in and then press the mixture into shapes using biscuit cutters. We usually put a hole in them too so we can tie them up with string and hang them on branches in the garden.

These are so simple to make and it's so important this time of year to remember our little feathered friends.

  1. Loved these as a child! We would roll pinecones in peanut butter and seeds. Happy holidays!
