Pumpkin Patch Biscuits Recipe

I got smart and started making double batches of these moist, fluffy biscuits to meet the demand. My dad loves their pumpkiny goodness and requests them for Christmas, Father's Day and his birthday. —Liza Taylor, Seattle, Washington
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:7 servings

  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin

"These biscuits were fantastic! They were light, flaky, and the flavor was delicious. I did add a splash of vanilla extract, a pinch of nutmeg and a half teaspoon of cinnamon. I also doubled the recipe. The dough was a bit wet so I had to add a little more flour and kneed a little longer but my kids ate them all up and asked me to make more tomorrow. I will be using this recipe regularly from now on. Thanks!"

"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."

"These were great! Very soft & tender without being greasy! I made them in my kitchenaid mixer so the dough was really soft, needing a little extra flour. I hand rolled them instead of rolling them out. My husband wants them for Thanksgiving now!"

These would also be good spread a little thinner and baked till crisp...little vanilla ice cream and cinnamon sugar, and you'd have a great dessert!"
