    l0ve2c00k's Note:

    "You can use commercially canned or homegrown pumpkin for this recipe. If doing the latter, bake the pumpkin rather than boil it in order to get a drier, denser product. After scraping the baked flesh from the rinds, use an electric mixer to beat until smooth. Remove any tough, fibrous pieces that didn’t cook down." - Hobbyfarmers.com

    biscuits

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Stir together dry ingredients.
    2. 2
      Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
    3. 3
      Add pumpkin and milk, stirring just until ingredients are moistened and a soft dough forms. If the dough seems very soft, add more flour, a few tablespoons at a time, just until the dough is easy to handle.

    5. 5
      Using a 2-inch biscuit or cookie cutter in a simple shape of your choice (such as a pumpkin or leaf), dip the cutter into flour, shake off excess and press into biscuit dough.
    6. 6
      Place biscuits on a lightly greased cookie sheet one-inch apart and bake at 450 degrees F for 8 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
    7. 7
      Serve hot with butter and honey or apple butter.

      These make a great snack. Like PaulaG, I noticed a significant baking powder taste. The next time I made them I used only 1 tablespoon of baking powder and doubled the sugar. It took longer to bake, but I liked the flavor better.

      These biscuits bake up tall and proud. I got a strong taste of baking powder but DH couldn't taste it so it may have been my taste buds. I added up all the spices and used an equivalent of Baking Spice Blend Mix. They were cut with pumpkin and maple leaf cutters.
