  • 1. Preheat oven to 450°F Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt.

  • 3. Add pumpkin, milk and brandy extract; stir just until blended.
  • 4. Place dough on heavily floured surface; knead 30 seconds, or just until dough is no longer sticky. (Do not overwork dough.) Roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness on lightly floured surface.

    These were devoured in mere minutes in my house! I halved the recipe and used cinnamon, allspice, ginger, clove and fresh grated nutmeg in place of the pie spice. I also didn't have brandy extract so I used 1 tsp spiced rum and buttermilk in place of regular milk. My biscuits were a tad wet for rolling because I got a bit heavy-handed with the buttermilk. Oops! So I made drop biscuits and they baked up tender and yummy, if slightly denser than a normal biscuit. I will definitely be making these any time I have excess pumpkin...

    I am not going to rate this recipe as I was not pleased with the outcome. I mixed it up as directed and the dough was too sticky and soft to knead even though I added more flour. I think the two cups of liquid is too much for the amount of dry ingredients. I used salted butter and reduced the salt to 3/4 teaspoon. When I added half the liquid amount (milk, pumpkin, brandy) the mixture looked fine, when I added the second half the mixture was like a drop biscuit batter so that's what I did. They smelled wonderful while baking! Unfortunately, the biscuits were not flaky, but very heavy and doughy. Sorry Chef amfox, this recipe did not work for me, prepared forPAC spring 2010.
