Bunny Biscuits on a wooden board with strawberry jelly

Easter is my oldest daughter’s favorite holiday. I’m not sure why, but she loves the excitement of waking up and seeing her basket filled with goodies and going on an egg hunt around our house. She also loves a fun bunny-themed dessert or breakfast on Easter. I made these Bunny Biscuits and they were too easy not to share!

Admittedly, I’m no Pinterest mom. You know, the ones that are super talented and creative and make really fun and festive treats that are magazine-worthy? Yeah, that’s not me. So here we are with these slightly scuffed Bunny Biscuits!

These are so stinking easy to make. I totally cheated and bought refrigerated biscuit dough. The biscuit dough and a handful of raisins are all you need to make these. If you have a favorite homemade biscuit, you can certainly use it to make these (or you can be like me, a non-Pinterest worthy mom).

Tips and suggestions before you get started:

  • You may find that the ears do not stay together very well once baked if using prepared biscuit dough. I used my hands to really push the dough together for the ears with the head. You can also use toothpicks, but use caution that they are removed before eating (especially with kids!).
  • I used a can of biscuit dough that had 8 biscuits and I got 4 whole bunnies. Keep this in mind as you may want to purchase extra cans if you need more bunnies. Essentially, you will get about half the amount that is in each can.
  • I used the original homestyle-type (Grands) biscuits. Once you add the ears, the biscuits are pretty large. If you are making these for kids, you might want to buy the smaller size!
  • These bunnies go well with both sweet and savory breakfast or brunch spreads! Serve them with an assortment of jams, butter, and cream cheese. They are also great with scrambled eggs and bacon!

Bunny Biscuits - These sweet bunny biscuits are perfect for Easter brunch! Using refrigerated biscuit dough, these are so simple to make!


  • 1 can refrigerated homestyle biscuits (8 biscuits)
  • 1/4 cup raisins or currants


  1. Preheat oven according to directions on biscuit package. Take two biscuits and set one aside. Use scissors or a sharp knife and cut the other biscuit into thirds.
  2. Use the two end pieces to make the ears. Firmly attach the ears to the back of of the other biscuit. Cut the remaining third piece into another three pieces. Use your fingers to form the small piece into a small circle and place down towards the lower middle of the biscuit to make the nose (see second photo). Repeat with remaining dough.
  3. Take a raisin and cut in half and arrange each piece to make the eyes. Snip another small piece of a raisin to make the nose (or use currants which are smaller) and place on top of the small circular piece of dough on top. Use a sharp knife to create small cuts around the nose portion to make the whiskers.
  4. Bake the biscuits according to package directions until golden. About two minutes before they are done, I recommend opening the oven and gently pushing the raisin and dough nose down into the biscuit (this piece may rise when baking so this helps keep it lowered and a part of the face of the bunny)!.
  5. Arrange cooked biscuits on a serving board or platter. If needed/desired, you can use toothpicks to keep the ears attached better, but use caution to remove before eating.
