Easy Biscuits Simple Pleasures
Does Brunch Equal Second Breakfast?
When I was little, Grandma always had a mid morning snack waiting for us after checking the hen house, and making a run through the garden. Nothing fancy; what a happy hobbit might call “Second breakfast.”
A cold sweet biscuit with honey, a few slices of apple, and a hot cup of tea is a comforting pick-me-up on these “tween” days of winter/spring.
Now if you have a big family, these may not last for “Second Breakfast.” It’s a risk worth taking.
We enjoy Sweet Pumpkin Biscuits served at room temperature, with all the accompaniments of a Sunday brunch. Try with cream cheese and thinly sliced turkey….divine!
Sweet Pumpkin Biscuits, simple pleasures to linger over with friends. Hope you will bake some!
Sweet Pumpkin Biscuits Recipe
Quick Bread Recipe, Breakfast Recipe, Brunch Recipe, Biscuit Recipe, Pumpkin Recipe
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter softened, organic preferred
- 2 Tablespoons bacon grease or shortening
- 1 cup pumpkin puree (Freeze your own Pumpkin)
- 1/2 cup milk, organic preferred
1. Preheat oven to 400°
2. Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
3. Cut in butter and shortening, dough should look like coarse corn meal.
4. Add pumpkin and milk, stirring just enough to moisten.
5. On a lightly floured surface, turn dough out and knead half a dozen times.
6. Pat dough out to ½ inch thickness. You could roll it out, but why?
7. I use a small biscuit cutter to make the rounds, flouring cutter between cuttings.
8. Usually, I prefer biscuits cooked in a cast iron skillet….but for some reason these biscuits do better on baking trays. So line 2 baking trays with foil, and lightly grease. I use bacon grease.
9. Bake for about 15 minutes until golden brown.
This makes almost 3 dozen small biscuits. If you have leftovers, Sweet Pumpkin biscuits freeze well. I like these with honey, or sliced open and served with sliced turkey or ham. Enjoy!
