Funfetti Red White and Blue Skillet Biscuits

Highly customizable biscuits for any occasion, just switch up the colored candy sprinkles for a festive look.

8-funfetti-iced-biscuit

These patriotic biscuits have red, white and blue inside and out.

The fun part about these biscuits is that the color of candy sprinkles can be changed up for any occasion.

And so can the color of the icing for that matter.

Funfetti Candy in Biscuit Dough

This icing has a bit of lemon juice in it which adds a hint of tart flavor to contrast the sweetness of the icing.

These biscuits are made in an iron skillet which is my favorite way to make them because the sides of each biscuit bake up against one another.

Then when the biscuits are pulled apart the sides are super soft.

Here are some more scrumptious recipes with skillet biscuits “Skillet Biscuits with Sage Sausage Gravy“,  “Sugar Coated Biscuit Strawberry Shortcake“, and “Snickerdoodle Skillet Biscuits“.

The hardest thing about making these red, white and blue biscuits is the red, white and blue part.

The hard part isn’t actually making them, it’s finding these colors in the grocery or craft store.

You know how it goes, when you’re not looking for something, is when you find it.

The jimmie candy sprinkles work well in these biscuits because they stand up nicely in the dough.

In a pinch, if only the blue and red ones are available that should work just fine when using white icing.

Let’s check out the ingredients.
