Festive fall inspired recipe that pairs  the famous pumpkin pie spices with flaky, buttery biscuits. Topped with a sweet spiced butter.



Pumpkin Spice Biscuits

2 1/2 cups self-rising flour (plus extra for dusting)

1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

2 teaspoons Penzey’s cinnamon

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup cold butter, cubed

3/4 cup whole buttermilk, chilled

3 tablespoons melted butter for brushing on top

2 teaspoons cinnamon-sugar, reserve for topping

Whipped Spiced Sweet Butter

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon pumpkin spice

1 teaspoon Penzey’s cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt (if using salted butter, omit this)


Pumpkin Spice Biscuits

Pre-heat oven to 425. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large bowl, stir together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, salt and spices). Using a fork, cut butter into the flour until mixture resembles course crumbs with some pea-size butter pieces remaining.  Add buttermilk, stirring until combined.

Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface. Knead dough several times until it comes together. Pat into a 10×9 rectangle. Using a 2 1/2 inch round cutter dipped in flour, cut dough without twisting cutter. Reroll scraps as needed. Place rounds on prepared pan, spacing 2 inches apart. Brush tops with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, (reserving leftover butter for another brushing after baked). Freeze until chilled, about 15 minutes.

Bake until golden brown, about 11-12 minutes. While the biscuits are still warm, brush the remaining melted butter.

Whipped Spiced Sweet Butter

In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients until smooth and whipped. Spread onto warm biscuits and serve.
