10 servings (serving size: 2 biscuits)

The biscuits are a breeze to make in the food processor; or you can make them by hand.

How to Make It

Step 1

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

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.

Have made these over and over again. I have doubled and tripled this recipe and it has never let me down.
