Black Pepper and Thyme Biscuits

The Best Black Pepper and Thyme Biscuits

These Black Pepper and Thyme Biscuits are soft and buttery with fragrant thyme and a subtle hint of heat from the black pepper making them one of the best pairings for a good bowl of soup.

I will use any excuse to make biscuits and my Turkey and Red Peas Soup needed some good company.

Similar to the Southern Buttermilk Biscuits made previously, These biscuits have a soft and buttery buttermilk flavor with the fragrant taste of fresh thyme and subtle kick of heat from the pepper.

They go perfect with soups and would even be amazing as sliders like my buttermilk chicken sliders.

However you decide to eat them just know they are addictive!
