I first saw these little do-dads in Taste of Home Magazine and thought, “Oooohhhh…” and then, with 5 cans of solid pack pumpkin in the pantry, I figured these would be the perfect thing for an Autumn evening.
They don’t have any of the pumpkin spices that you would expect in a pumpkin bread, but it is nice to know that there is a good dose of vegetables in that little biscuit. They are soft and flaky besides. Beat that. Oh, yeah and they taste really, really good.
How to make Pumpkin Patch Biscuits:
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/3 cup buttermilk
In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in 1/2 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine pumpkin and buttermilk; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8-10 times. Pat or roll out to 1-in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter–the top of a mason jar works great. Place 1 in. apart on a greased baking sheet.
Bake at 425° for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Brush butter over biscuits. Serve warm.

Wow, I can’t wait to try these! (I bet you could doctor them up with spice, roll them out, roll them up, and make a cinnamon roll type of breakfast treat, too!)

Rearranged the pantry awhile back. I couldn’t believe how many cans of pumpkin were hiding in there. Big ones, little ones, solid and all. Don’t know what I was thinking…
How many ‘mason jar’ size biscuits, does this make?

These sound really, really wonderful! Thanks for sharing. We LOVE pumpkin here, with or without added spice.
