Well, maybe I did someting wrong, but the dough was so wet and gooey, I had to work more flour into it just so I could handle it. I think that's too much pumpkin puree. The finished product was tough and dry.
I made this with a Sunday night "turkey dinner, and my friends loved them! I lowered the pumpkin on advice from a previous reviewer but probably won't do that again.
I found that making a few minor adjustments to this recipe...First set your oven to 350 not 400, next I added an extra 1/4 tsp of baking powder, I only used 3/4 of the 15 0z can of pumkin puree and doubled my spices plus added allspice. The biscuits rose and came out awesome. Don't expect the taste to be strong they're biscuits not pumkin pie.
These biscuits were very easy to make. My kids loved them and they had a pleasing, light pumpkin flavor. My only complaint is that they need a bit more spice. Next time I will add more cinnamon.
I wasn't impressed by this recipe at all. My biscuits turned out flat and didn't have much flavor.
I have made 100's of recipes from this site and do not usually review, but had to on this one: I made these. I shortened it up a bit and used a baking mix instead of flour, and baking powder, and added more spices and brown sugar for flavor. They turned out just like the posted picture and tasted wonderful!! My dough was soft and pliable and they did rise a bit too. I will be making these again, as I have 6 tubs of fresh pureed pumpkin in my freezer!!
Lets just call them scones. They didnt rise. They crackled on top like a molasses cookie. Smear some frosting on top and they are great scones. And thats what I will use this recipe as.
