Pumpkin Biscuits

I don't know why I don't have a picture of these. Just trust me on this one, their GOOD!

Oh don't these sound like they would go perfect with your Thanksgiving dinner?

Give them a try.

2 cups all purpose flour
3 TBS. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup milk or buttermilk
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
Cooking Spray


1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine the flour and next 6 ingredients; cut in butter with a pastry blender or you can use 2 knives, until mixture resembles coarse meal.
3. Combine milk and pumpkin; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Turn the dough onto a slightly floured surface and knead lightly 5 times. Roll the dough to a 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into 12 biscuits with a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake for 11 mins. or until golden.
