It is always the most fun in Sunday School for the kids to make biscuits the morning of Turkey Soup Day! 

So keep a tube of biscuits on hand for ease or get a little messy with homemade and keep the tradition alive!!

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and cream of tartar.  Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resemble coarse crumbs.  Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.  Add milk all at once.  Using a fork, stir in just until mixture is moistened.
