Easter Biscuits

Side Dishes

Easy Southern Buttermilk Biscuits

Whether you're serving with butter, jam, honey, or another spread, these easy biscuits are sure to be a hit. Bonus, any leftover biscuits make a great breakfast alternative to toast. Borrowed from our friends at Woman's Day.


  • 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tablespoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 ½ tablespoons sugar
  • ¾ teaspoons salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a nine-inch-square baking pan and 1/3-cup measuring cup. Flour your baking sheet to prevent sticking.
  2. In a food processor, pulse three cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt. Add butter and pulse again to form coarse crumbs; transfer to bowl. You can also whisk the dry ingredients by hand. To incorporate the butter by hand, press slices of butter in the flour between your fingers to form irregular pieces about the size of walnut halves.
  3. Stir buttermilk into flour mixture with a rubber spatula until just combined. With you greased measuring cup, scoop 9 heaping cups of dough onto the floured baking sheet. Lightly dust tops of mounds with flour from sheet. With floured hands, gently arrange mounds in pan in three rows of three.
  4. Brush the tops with melted butter and bake five minutes. Then reset oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and bake 15 to 20 minutes more until golden.
  5. Let the biscuits cool in the pan for two minutes. Then carefully invert onto a wire rack. Serve warm. You can also cool them, then wrap tightly and store at room temperature up to three days. To serve, reheat in 350 degrees Fahrenheit oven for 10 minutes.

Apricot-glazed Green Beans

This is one of those rare recipes that requires very little work but produces a result that's nothing short of gourmet. Plus, it's important to have some vegetables along with all of your sweets.

Borrowed from our friends at Woman's Day.


  • 2 pounds green beans
  • 6 slice bacon
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup apricot jam
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add one tablespoon salt, then the green beans. Cook until just tender, about three to four minutes, then drain and run under cold water to stop the cooking.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat, about six to eight minutes, until crisp. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel, let cool, then break into pieces.
  3. Wipe out the skillet and heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for about two minutes until the garlic begins to brown.
  4. Stir in the jam, vinegar, and ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Add the green beans and toss to coat. Fold in the bacon.
Easter Egg Nest

Sweet Treats

Easter Bird Nests

Remember those wonderful Easter holidays spent at Grandma's house? Chances are, you ate more than a few of these delicious Easter bird nests. Relive these nostalgic times and make them for your family this year.

Borrowed from our friends at Grateful Prayer Thankful Heart.


  • 2 cups small marshmallows
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 4 cups chow mein noodles
  • Candy to fill the nests, such as M&M's, Jelly Beans, or even Whoppers
  1. Coat muffin pan with cooking spray.
  2. Melt butter in a large, microwave safe bowl. Add marshmallows, stir, then microwave 45 seconds on full power.  Stir, then microwave for an additional 45 seconds.  Stir, then add Chow Mein noodles and stir until coated with marshmallow/butter mixture.
  3. Spray some cooking spray or oil on your hands. Spoon the coated Chow Mein noodles in each cup of muffin pan, then use your hands to form it into little nests. If you would like a more free-form nest shape, drop a spoonful onto a piece of waxed paper and form with your hands to desired shape.
  4. Freeze nests for one hour.
  5. Pop each nest out using a knife or form. Place on a plate lined with parchment paper so nests won't stick. Fill with candy and enjoy!

  • 10 ounces mini marshmallows (4 cups)

  4. Stir in the additional marshmallows, sprinkles, and M&M's quickly.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan. Coat your hands with butter or nonstick baking spray and press the mixture down gently. Do not over press the mixture or your treats will be harder and crunchier.
  6. Let the treats cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting into squares. Store in a tightly sealed container.

  • Peeps, any color
  • Graham crackers
  • Milk chocolate bars
