Welcome to the official start of fall! We here at FaveSouthernRecipes absolutely adore autumn. Every year I look forward to warm beverages, cool days, and changing leaves. As soon as September rolls around, I start demanding that all of my desserts be apple flavored.
When it comes to pumpkin-flavored foods, I am a little more patient…But not by much. It seems like the infusion of pumpkin spice into our lives begins earlier and earlier every year. Now that it’s officially autumn, however, I say bring on the pumpkin!
Last week I spent some time in the test kitchen making a heavenly new recipe for Pumpkin Buttermilk Biscuits. The combination of pumpkin and biscuits may sound strange, but believe me when I tell you that this is one seriously good (and easy) biscuit recipe. It didn’t hurt matters that I also made some homemade cinnamon butter to spread on the hot biscuits.
All of the taste testers raved about how good these biscuits are—one even said that these were better than her grandmother’s biscuits! I’m not sure I would go that far, but I will say that these pumpkin biscuits are pretty darn good.
