I know everyone is busy getting ready for Thanksgiving right now, my family is too. It's really my favorite holiday, filled with good food, family, and friends, and a chance to stop and reflect on all we're grateful for.
This year we moved to Nevada, so now I live very close to one of my sons and his family, which of course is wonderful. But my other son and youngest daughter will be spending Thanksgiving back in Seattle due to their jobs, and they're coming for Christmas.
My other daughter, Laura, who is my co-writer here on the blog, always has Thanksgiving in California. I'm hoping one year I can get all of my kids together around one table and spend Thanksgiving together. That would make me so happy. And I hope I haven't confused you, but as the mother of five grown children, they often confuse me!
Which brings me to these yummy and easy Hurry-Up Biscuits. I know how important side dishes are to Thanksgiving dinner, we have our family favorites that are almost the same every year. But I don't think the biscuits should be overlooked, for me they are important for soaking up that delicious turkey gravy.
So I tried out a couple of different biscuit recipes today, and this one was my favorite. Not only do I love the taste, but they are so easy to make. You could pre-make the dough if you like, and pop them in the oven after you've taken out the turkey and letting it rest for a bit.
Simply put the dry ingredients in a large bowl and add 2 cups of whipping cream. Then drop 1/4 cup of dough on a baking sheet and pop in the oven. Super easy!
Recipe for Hurry-Up Biscuits
