  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
  • 3 tbsp freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup puree pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup 35% whipping cream or, if you can get it, heavy cream


  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and 1 tbsp parmesan cheese in a large bowl.
  • Dice the cold butter and add it to the dry ingredients. Cut the butter in with a pastry cutter or your fingers, until it looks like coarse crumbs.
  • In a small bowl combine pumpkin and cream. Add the pumpkin/cream mixture to the flour/butter mixture. Using a fork, or your hands, mix until a dough begins to form.
  • Drop dough onto a lightly floured surface and form dough into a square. Using a rolling pin, roll dough 1/2″ thick.
  • Cut out biscuits, using a 2″ round cutter, or a small glass.
  • Place biscuits on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Brush each biscuit top with melted butter and sprinkle with remaining parmesan cheese.
  • Bake in 400F oven for 12-15 minutes…until golden brown.
