I’ve been on a big baking spree lately, and a lot of it has involved pumpkin. I hope you guys don’t mind! I’m certainly having fun with it! 🙂 I have more pumpkin-y plans to come, too! But anyways, these biscuits… I knew I had to make them as soon as I saw them. They were such a wonderfully tasty looking idea! And they didn’t fail. Spiced, pumpkin-y goodness, and absolutely amazing when they’re fresh out of the oven. There’s something about fresh baked goods that is just so delicious!
They make a great bread side at dinner, or have them with breakfast. So if you still feel up to being in the kitchen after Thursday, please give these a try!Pumpkin Biscuits
Yield: 6-8 biscuits
2½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoons brown sugar
¾ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
5 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
¾ cup pumpkin puree
½ cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons honey
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, combine the pumpkin, milk, and honey; set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, brown sugar, salt, and spices. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until the mixture holds together. Knead lightly on a floured surface, adding extra flour if needed. Using your hands, pat the dough out to 1-inch thickness then use a 2-inch biscuit butter to cut the dough into circles. Re-roll the scraps as needed until all the dough is used. Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

Oh WOW! These look amazing! I love all the spices in the recipe. They work so well together… I bet these taste just as good as they look! 😀
Yum! I can just imagine how good these smell coming out of the oven!
These sound delicious and I love the golden color the pumpkin gives them.
They look as if they were much much more complicated to prepare: almost as if they were made with layered puff pastry! The colour is beautiful too! I bet they were yummy!
The color is so unusual! My four yeat old would love them – yellow/orange is his favorite color. 🙂
These biscuits sound like a great idea!
Mmmmm. We used a pumpkin biscuit to top off a cobbler. I should make these to eat just on their own. 🙂 They look heavenly with that butter!
So beautiful with the butter melting on top – I wantz! Beautiful colour… I bet they smell divine!
Wow those biscuits look amazing! I can just imagine those coming out fresh from the oven and a dollop of butter melting over it
These sound awesome and I actually have 3/4 cup of pumpkin waiting in the fridge for just the right purpose! Thanks!!
