Often, I make a double batch of these moist, fluffy biscuits to meet the demand. My dad loves their pumpkiny goodness and requests them for holidays, Father's Day and his birthday. —Liza Taylor, Seattle, Washington

"I make these biscuits every Thanksgiving and they are fabulous!!!"

"From its appearance, my family expected this to taste like "Nutty Sweet Potato Biscuits" from Taste of Home years ago. Or so my family thought! They missed the cinnamon, nutmeg and nuts. So it didn't get a very high rating!

In one spot the yield says "7 servings" and in another it says "6 biscuits", but I managed to get 9 biscuits!"

"I keep coming back to this. I have made it countless times to rave reviews. A new staple to the Thanksgiving and Yule meals. Definitely a keeper. I also double this batch and have at times tripled it. A fall favorite around our house."

"I followed everyone's suggestion and doubled the recipe (which said it made 6). I ended up with 28 2 inch biscuits! So they must be making 4-5 inch biscuits in the original recipe. I did use home grown pumpkin, which I drained and pureed-and it looked the same consistency as canned. These were a hit with the grand kids. I liked the sweetness...a cross between a biscuit and a scone. They are very moist- perhaps I should have baked them a tad longer, but I baked them a bit over 20 min anyway."

"used only a 1/4 cup of butter instead of 1/2, turned out great!"
