These pumpkin biscuits are slightly sweet, with traditional pumpkin pie spices to emphasize the pumpkin flavor. Serve them hot from the oven with butter, honey, or honey butter.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 27 minutes

Yield: about 12 biscuits


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (and maybe a little more, see instructions)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/3 cup cold butter, cut into cubes
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree (canned or homemade)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter


Preheat oven to 450 F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

Whisk together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Place flour mixture in a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Add cold butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs.

Remove to a bowl and stir in pumpkin and milk. Mix just until moistened and a soft dough forms. If the dough is too wet to handle, stir in additional flour, just enough so you can handle it.

Roll out dough to 1/2-inch thick on a lightly floured board. Using a floured biscuit cutter, cut into 2-inch circles. Place on prepared pan 1 inch apart and brush with melted butter. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, until golden brown.

Serve pumpkin biscuits right out of the oven with butter, honey, or honey butter.

Yield: about 12 biscuits

Yummy with a few changes!, Member jeffbridges

When I think pumpkin biscuits I think sweet, so we pretty much doubled the spices and added sugar until the batter tasted yummy. Also, instead of rolling and cutting we just spooned biscuit sized balls onto the baking sheet. With those changes these puppies are DYNAMITE! Great with honey.
