Pumpkin Spice Biscuits

Pumpkin Spice Biscuits

Several weeks ago I made Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars and afterward had half a can of pumpkin left over. Hating to waste the perfectly good Pumpkin,  I made Pumpkin Biscuits and they were a hit. Mind you,  all of my grandchildren were here and they can be picky about trying new things…not these. They loved them. So I made a bigger batch,  and once again…the kids were taking them home for their breakfast the next morning.

So, if you’re looking for a new way to include Pumpkin into your Fall menu or Thanksgiving  Dinner, here you go!

It’s easy as pie…first melt a stick of butter in a saucepan on the stove and add 1/2 cup sugar.

pumpkin butter

Stir over low heat until the butter has melted. Add 1 can pumpkin, 1 /2 cup milk and 1 Teaspoon spice to butter mixture. I used a Pumpkin Pie Spice one time and cinnamon the next. They are equally good.

pumpkin butter flour

Remove pan from heat and gradually  stir in 3 1/2 cups self-rising flour into pumpkin mixture until combined.

Turn out onto a well floured board. Gently work in about 1 more cup of flour, more or less, until dough is smooth and not sticky.

  1. OHHH YUM! You are VERY creative! 🙂

  2. yummy. nice presentation. i am sure they taste great too 😀

  3. They look more like scones… I bet they are delicious!

    • Yes, I thought making scones. I would drizzle a glaze over them and use cream in place of the milk, maybe a tad more sugar…but you’re right..very sconey…and very good…. 😉 thanks for commenting!

  4. Love your recipe!

  5. I bake without gluten, and love using pumpkin in scones (with craisins!!) Or muffins! So easy and delicious! And love adding a bit of cardamom to the spice blend.
    I often add cooked quinoa to my GF blend (generally sorghum, coconut flour, tapioca …)

    • I’ve never gone gluten free…I’ve been thinking I might need to try it and see how I feel….great tips! Thanks!

  6. Boy do they look yummy! Did you know you can freeze pumpkin? It has worked quite nicely on occasion.
