Pumpkin Biscuits

This is a recipe I have made with sweet potato in the past.  I had to try it out with pumpkin.  The addition of pumpkin or sweet potatoes raises the nutritional value of biscuits and also adds a pump of flavor.  I have some friends that are moving and had to clear out their garden at the place they are leaving.  So I was given baby turnips and eggplant.  These biscuits were paired with oven roasted baby turnips and braised turnip greens.  Can you tell I am from the south?  Eat these with whatever you wish, just enjoy them!

Pumpkin Biscuits

2 cups spelt flour (you can use organic all purpose as well)
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
5 tbsp. cold butter cut into small pieces
1 cup pureed cooked pumpkin (fresh or canned)
1 tbsp. honey
1/3 cup milk (use whatever kind you wish)

Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.  Using two knives or a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the dry mixture until it resembles course meal.  In another bowl combine the pumpkin, honey and milk.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix just until moist.  

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead lightly 5 or 6 times.  Roll or pat dough to 3/4" inch thick.  Using a biscuit cutter (you can also use a glass)  cut into biscuits.  Gather the remnants of dough together and roll again till dough is used.

Place biscuits on a greased cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until when tapped they have a hollow sound.  Serve them up!

As I stated I usually have made this recipe with sweet potato.  You can do the same.  It is a great way to use leftover baked sweet potato.  If you want a quicker way to cut into biscuits, roll your dough into a square 3/4" thick.  Using a knife cut into squares approximately 2" x 2".  Yes, you will have square biscuits.  But, you know what?  They taste just as good as round. Have fun in the kitchen everyone!
