Recipe by duonyte
From the New York Times. Author Melissa Clark says these can be made ahead and refrigerated, covered with plastic, and baked while the turkey rests. I generally do not use kosher salt in baked goods, so I would probably use 1/2 tsp table salt.

The aroma from the baking biscuits was fantastic! However, I did find the dough to be extremely dry and had to add at least a 1/2-cup of additional cream to get the dough to the right consistency. Even so, I still found the biscuits a tad dry after baking. The flavor combination of the soppressata and the scallion was so wonderful, though, that I would love to keep fiddling with this to see how to get the perfect, moist biscuit. Thanks for sharing this lovely treat.
