Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine first 3 ingredients in food processor, and pulse 2 times or until blended. Add shortening, and process for 10 seconds or until blended.

  • Dissolve sugar and yeast in warm buttermilk and water in a small bowl; let stand 5 minutes. With processor on, slowly add yeast mixture through food chute; process until dough leaves sides of bowl and forms a ball.

  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead in cranberries. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter into 20 biscuits. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Let rise, uncovered, in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 20 minutes or until puffy.

  • Bake at 425° for 8 minutes or until golden. Split biscuits, and fill each with 3/4 ounce turkey. Serve with Spicy Mustard, if desired.
