Hello my friends! It’s officially Thanksgiving week and you guessed it, I’m super excited! How about you? We are doing our usual combined effort, I’ll do my ‘special’ turkey, green beans, and pies, Mr. sprinkle does the potatoes, and my mom does the sweet potatoes and cranberries. I hope my giant 20 pound turkey thaws out in time!

Homemade whole wheat cutout biscuits are super easy and taste delicious! This recipe has no refined sugar and takes only 30 minutes or so!

This is also the end of our first week in the new house and thankfully, we are settled in! You probably won’t be surprised by what I’m about to say, but I unpacked almost immediately…I just can’t handle boxes and stuff sitting around (and yes, I have my Christmas tree and decorations up too!). Priorities people!

Anyway, now that life is feeling somewhat normal, I’ve been back in the kitchen too (my family is very thankful for this!). One of our breakfast favorites (besides donuts and French toast of course) is biscuits…and gravy, or jam, or honey, or eggs and bacon. We all like them and everyone can have one (or several, haha) just the way they wan it! Win!

This is my go-to recipe for biscuits. The ingredients are minimal and whole and they’re quick and easy to make, which on Saturday morning is super-duper important! They come out crispy on the outside and soft and light on the inside! MMM! Warm, buttery, and delicious homemade biscuits!

*This recipe can be made with either sour cream or plain Greek yogurt.
*They also freeze really well, either in a container or individually.
