Description

These Pumpkin Biscuits are the perfect addition to your fall soups and stews.  They’re delicious served up warm from the oven with loads of butter!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 6 tbsp chilled butter (cut into pieces)
  • 3/4 cup pure pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  3. Using a pastry cutter, cut in the chilled butter, until it looks like coarse meal, with some pea sized butter pieces remaining.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the pumpkin puree and buttermilk.
  5. Then add the pumpkin/buttermilk mixture to the flour.
  6. Stir with a fork, but don’t over mix.
  7. Then turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and knead into a ball. It is supposed to be lumpy – that’s what makes them so buttery and crumbly!
  8. Then flatten the ball into a circle disc shape, about 1 inch thick. The disc should be big enough to get 8 biscuits cut out of it.
  9. Using a pizza cutter, cut the disc into 8 pieces.
  10. Bake for 20 minutes.
