Tis the season to be baking with pumpkin! With a light pumpkin flavor, these biscuits have a flaky, moist texture, perfect for a biscuit. Very easy to make, they are PERFECT served with apple butter. I like a biscuit about 2 1/2 inches wide and rather thick, so this makes about 9 biscuits. I started with a recipe I found in A Quilter's Christmas Cookbook, from the Good Books line of cookbooks, and I modified it to make it suit our tastes. Enjoy!
2 c. flour
3 T. sugar
4 t. baking powder
3/4 tsp cinnamon
Cut in 1/2 c unsalted butter, softened, until it looks like crumbs.
1/2 c half & half
2/3 c pureed pumpkin
Place them, sides touching, on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Put a dab of soft butter on top of each biscuit. Bake for 12 minutes at 425 degrees.
Serve with apple butter in October and November! These would be so nice with breakfast, with a little ham or turkey in between (feeling inspiration coming on ... ), or with dinner. Yum!
