Pumpkin Biscuits - a Baking Fail

I found this great recipe for pumpkin biscuits on allrecipes.com. They were low in Points Plus values and looked delicious. I had some pumpkin to use up, so I made them earlier this week. Well...my biscuits flopped. They looked more like cookies than biscuits. They tasted great, but didn't look so good - certainly nothing like the picture on the webpage with the original recipe. This is most likely my fault because I put a little extra pumpkin in. The ingredients didn't seem to be mixing well and I had a little more pumpkin in the can to use up, so I added it. I think that this led to the dough being way too moist.

Next time, I'll follow the recipe exactly and be a little more patient with my mixing. Give these a try and let me know if yours turn out better than mine!



Pumpkin Biscuits
Yield: 36 servings {allrecipes.com has a great feature that lets you change the number of servings and then adjusts the recipe for you. I adjusted it to make 6 servings, but am posting the original recipe below.}

What You Need
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground ginger {I substituted pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.}
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 cup butter, sliced
2 cups pumpkin puree

What To Do
~ Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
~ Grease a large baking sheet.
~ Stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.
~ Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
~ Stir in the pumpkin and mix to form a soft dough.
~ On a lightly floured surface pat the dough to 1/2 in. thick.
~ Cut out the biscuits with a round 2 in. cutter.
~ Place biscuits on prepared baking sheet.
~ Bake 15-20 minutes. Serve warm.
