Rosemary Herb Biscuits

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.

    Justine,

    I left that open ended because it all depends on what I have in the kitchen. :) Dried spices will do in a pinch but if you have fresh herbs in your pantry go for the fresh ingredients always.

  4. These look so utterly scrumptious! And they definitely sound like they’d be a perfect accompaniment to soup. I bet they would be delicious with some garlic butter as well…

    Garlic butter — definitely! Heck, you could even throw some minced garlic in the dough if you wanted.
