I recently made turkey and wild rice soup and I was trying to think of something tasty to go along with it. Biscuits came to mind as the perfect counterpart to a hearty soup. Instead of just plain biscuits I added some sage, rosemary, and thyme for more flavor. They turned out really well and the texture was crisp and flaky on the outside and warm and soft on the inside. They were easy to make and very good with my soup! I will definitely be making these again.
