Butterfly Biscuits

We enjoyed these for dinner tonight with bacon and scrambled eggs. Breakfast for dinner, YUM!
Butterfly Biscuits
1 can Pillsbury Grands Biscuits, any flavor
3-4 T. Strawberry Jam
Grated Orange peel from one orange
Colored Sugar (optional)
Whipped cream (I used the stuff in the spray can)
Strawberries, sprinkles, licorice strings for garnish

Preheat oven to 350. Spray cookie sheet w/ cooking spray. Open biscuits and carefully seperate them into two layers. Spread about 1/2 tsp. jam between layers then press back together, pinching the edges to seal. Cut biscuits in half and pinch edges to make sure they are sealed. Place two halves together on baking sheet, with rounded edges touching. Repeat with remaining biscuits. Spread a slight amount of jam on the top of each butterfly and sprinkle with orange peel and colored sugar. Bake 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool slightly then transfer to a plate where you can garnish with whipped cream "bodies", licorice "antenne", and chocolate sprinkle (or mini-chocolate chip) "eyes". Enjoy!
