2 1/2 cups
packed brown sugar
They were really good but still needed a little more flavor. Next time maybe some more brown sugar and cinnamon. I mixed up some butter and maple syrup (oops no honey...) and that made them wonderful snacks!
This sounds like it would be wonderful, but they don't come out very well. The taste is okay, but the texture isn't so great. Maybe with some modifications it would be better...I don't know if I'll make this again.
These were tasty, but small. The texture wasn't quite what I hoped for. They didn't rise much and weren't fluffy or flaky like I imagine biscuits to be. I might make these again.
Fabulous if you make the following changes: increase spices: 1 tbsp ground cinnamon, 1 tsp ground nutmeg, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1/2 tsp ground cloves. Added 1 tsp baking soda, upped the brown sugar to 1/4 cup. Combined 2/3 cup milk with 1 tsp vinegar and whisked with 1 and 1/2 cups of pumpkin puree. Dropped 8 to 10 biscuits on parchment paper and baked for 17 minutes. Oddly great with a thai pumpkin soup (nice mix of sweet and savoury).
maybe I did something wrong, but these were unedible. I like the idea of pumpkin biscuits, but this wasn't it. When the recipe stated to pat the dough down I should have had a feeling these were going to flop. They were very gooey and sticky (one could not use a rolling pin) I should have added more flour. I even had to increase the baking time as they were raw and doughy in the center at first. They never did cook right. And they stayed flat.
Make sure you oil your hands and have lots of flour on hand before handling - very gooy (I used fresh pureed pumpkin). It took longer to bake but was very good fresh out of the oven. Once they cooled off the texture was little doughy. Would be great with a hot soup on a cool day fresh out of the oven!
Mmmm... these were excellent. I found that the serving amounts were quite incorrect, however. For "36" servings, you might be lucky to get out 5 biscuits in reality. So make tons! These are great.
These were definitly different but really good. They were somewhat bland but I think maybe doubling the spices would help with that. My family enjoyed them.
