2 cups sifted all-purpose flour3 tablespoons sugar4 teaspoons baking powder1/2 teaspoon salt1/2 teaspoon cinnamon1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup butter1/3 cup chopped pecans1/2 cup light cream or dairy half and half2/3 cup canned pumpkin
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet and and set aside.
In a large bowl sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cut in the butter until mixture resembles small peas. Stir in pecans.
In a separate small bowl, combine cream and canned pumpkin. Mix well. Add to flour mixture and mix just enough to moisten dry ingredients. You will have a stiff biscuit dough.
Turn pumpkin biscuit dough onto a lightly floured board and knead gently a few times. Roll out to 1/2" thickness. Cut with 2" cutter. Place 1" apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake biscuits in oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
