This blog is for the harried cook, busy families, beginning cooks, anyone who needs or wants to get a simple meal on the table in 30 to 60 minutes. FORGET FEEDING YOUR FAMILY FAST FOOD AS A REGULAR DIET. Save fast food for an occasional treat and feed your family quick, healthy meals at home! Some recipes are original and some are ones I have collected over the years and found to be practical and tasty.

PUMPKIN CHEDDAR BISCUITS
2 cups flour
2.5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp salt
5 tbsp cold butter cut into cubes
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/3 cup buttermilk
3 tbsp honey
extra milk for brushing the biscuits
Preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl; using a pastry cutter, cut in the cubes of butter until mixture resembles a course meal. Set aside, or in the fridge.
Combine buttermilk and honey; whisk together. Add in the canned pumpkin.
Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients; do not over mix. Stir in the cheddar.
Roll dough until it’s in a rectangle shape, about 1/2 inch thickness. Fold into thirds, then roll into 9×5 rectangle, 1/2 thick. Fold into thirds again, and roll into a 9×5, 1/2 inch rectangle one last time (this helps with the flakiness).
Using a well floured biscuit cutter (I used a 2 inch wide GLASS), cut biscuits. Makes about 16 biscuits.
Place into the oven for 13-14 minutes, or until golden. Remove and let cool.
