One of the staples of the Thanksgiving table are biscuits. Versions of biscuits have been around since the Roman Empire but the classic soft flakey biscuit, slathered in butter is what comes to mind. But that would’nt fit the AIP.  So Chef Ann developed this recipe in the POTG Test Kitchen that is grain free, dairy free and fully AIP compliant. I really enjoyed this biscuit, it is moist and flavorfull. Perfectly sweet and savory. You know what they would be perfect for? Leftover Turkey Cranberry Sliders! Just slice the biscuit in half, spread a little AIP friendly mayonaisse, add some turkey and top off with a little cranberry sauce. YUM!

That is if you have any leftovers.
