Pumpkin Biscuits





Savory Pumpkin biscuits. This recipe was a total surprise for me. I thought it might turn out weird, too desserty or just remind me too much of pumpkin pie. But it looked interesting and who doesn't love a biscuit? So I figured I'd give it a go. 

These are good. Like really good. 








First of all, they are bright orange with just kinda makes me smile. And then they taste like pumpkin, they are flaky, and perfect for a big slab of butter. They work for a breakfast or dinner side too. Or savory things are always good for breakfast right? Don't get me wrong, I love a good coffeecake but a little savory for breakfast is just more satisfying. One time I made pesto cheddar french toast, and it is just such a refreshing breakfast item. I should do a post about that. (I have the tendency to go off on tangents, if you haven't noticed) In time. Back to these biscuits. 




I keep seeing in magazines a photo/recipe overlay layout. And I an loving them. It kinda makes me want to print out the actual photo and just write on them and scan them in. But most of the time my hand writing is illegible and never in a straight line, so for this moment I'll have to stick to photoshop. Unless I can find an old typewriter to use. I think that would be so amazing, but alas I have never been about to find one at a thrift store that wasn't vastly overpriced or looked like it was even somewhat working. Anyone in the Bay Area feeling generous? Haha



Monster Biscuit. They look like they are going to growl at you.

Me too, I totally love the recipe overlays!! I found an old type writer in my grams basement, but can't seem to find new ribbon for it!

Yeah thats what I'm worried about too, If I do find a typewriter, where do I get the ribbon.
Maybe you'll be able to order it online.

You MOST DEFINITELY need to post about the savory french toast, I live for a savory breakfast- and biscuits. Biscuits of any kind get me going like no other, and if they are a bright orange, I'm in!

Not much of a savory biscuit person...wondering if I could substitute cinnamon for the cayenne?

Sarah Fritzler said...

Wow. These are the best biscuits I've ever eaten. THANK YOU for sharing! I didn't have cumin so I went with cinnamon. Seriously, THE BEST biscuits ever.

p.s. I baked mine for 1/2 the time and, in high Colorado altitude, it made for the perfect consistency.

And the magazine layout! I love it! Is that a font you used for the title or your handwriting? BEAUTIFUL!
