Pumpkin Drop Biscuits

by Laura

Today’s pumpkin recipe is for drop pumpkin biscuits. Thinks biscuits with a touch of fall. They don’t really taste like pumpkin. The pumpkin adds tenderness and color.

In addition to the pumpkin, there are the fall spices of ginger, cinnamon, all spice, and nutmeg in the biscuits. They are perfect paired with a simple honey butter.

No need to roll and cut out these biscuits. You just trop this tender dough on the baking sheet by the spoonful.

The flavor and tenderness was very good. However, mine spread out like crazy. I used butter in place of shortening and I used powdered buttermilk. That’s the only changes. So I got creative and put half the batch in muffin tins. That worked out perfectly.
