Fast and Easy Biscuits

I love these biscuits because they are simple to make and can be ready to devour in 20 minutes. They pair nicely with turkey chili or hamburger soup and also make a mean breakfast sandwich.

These fast and easy biscuits are so flaky and soft. It’s the same dough I used for my mess-free sloppy joe pockets I shared with you a few months ago.

The biscuits are also freezer friendly, so you can totally double a batch and throw 1/2 in your freezer to go with one of your freezer meals or to defrost on a busy night when a can of soup is on the menu.
