Turn soft and delicate homemade biscuits into pretty daisies for Mother's Day. They taste great on their own but make a wonderful meal when filled with pulled pork. Your mom will love being served these tasty Biscuit Daisy BBQ Sandwiches on her special day.
Most moms love flowers so why not make some pretty flower-shaped biscuits for Mother's Day? You can serve them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
I created them for a Mother's Day dinner and my mom loved them!
You need to spend a little time creating the flower-shaped homemade biscuits, but otherwise, this Mother's Day meal will take very little prep time so you can enjoy more time with your mom.
To make the homemade daisy-shaped biscuits I used a quick and easy biscuit recipe that calls for cream instead of butter. The biscuits are soft and tender and have such a wonderful flavor.
The biscuit dough comes together quickly and is easy to roll out and cut into shapes.
I filled my biscuits with store-bought pulled pork. I used Farm Rich BBQ Pulled Pork. It is delicious! You can make homemade pulled pork if you prefer.
Let's make some daisy biscuits.
To make the pretty yellow daisy biscuits, cut the dough using a 4 or 5-inch daisy cutter. When you cut, do not twist the cutter, as this will crimp the edges and your biscuits won't rise much.
Then use a food-use-only paintbrush to paint yellow food coloring onto the petals and a green circle in the middle of each daisy.
The colors will darken as the biscuits brown. If you get too much coloring on the dough, remove it with a paper towel.
To make the imprinted biscuits you'll need a teardrop-shaped cutter and a small round cutter.
Press the round cutter into the center of each daisy, then press the teardrop cutter in the middle of each petal.
Which daisy biscuit do you think your mom will like better?
Delicate and soft biscuits cut into daisies. These treats are the perfect dinner for mothers day or any special spring occasion.
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder

- optional yellow and green food coloring
- 4 cups Farm Rich Smokehouse BBQ Pulled Pork or homemade pulled pork
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
Stir flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a mixing bowl.
Pour in whipping cream and stir just to combine.
Pour out onto a flour dusted cutting board.
Knead for 30 seconds until the dough is smooth.
Roll out to ¾ inch thickness and cut out daisies using a 4 or 5 inch cutter.
Re-roll once and cut out more daisies.
Set daisies on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Brush a green circle in the middle of each daisy then brush on yellow petals.
Or, press a small round cookie cutter in the center of each daisy then press a small tear drop cutter in the center of each petal.
Bake for 14-18 minutes until golden brown.
Cut open and fill with Smokehouse BBQ.

What fun to bite into a savory flower biscuit, my mom would love this sandwich as well. Unfortunately, I don't have a bit of her gardening skills, I'll just have to "grow" her flower biscuits!
Being your mom is a wonderful gardener (farmer,) she would probably really love these flower shaped biscuits. My gardening skills are limited, too. I'd probably starve if I had to live on the food produced in my garden. It's a good thing I can bake!
