Butternut Squash and Fresh Thyme Biscuits

Jane contributed this recipe, a delightful addition to a brunch, breakfast, or dinner. She comments, “These biscuits can be enjoyed as-is with butter, used instead of bread in a decadent sandwich, or dipped into a soup or stew. I highly recommend making a swiss chard and white bean stew – you can use carrots, potatoes, and tomatoes from the share.”

  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
