These biscuits were my first roll out and cut biscuits...ever. I've been intimidated by that variety of biscuits. I mean, drop biscuits are SO EASY, so why bother, right? I hate rolling dough out for some reason so this was one of my hold-ups in my Get Real journey. I think I conquered my stumbling block pretty well as these biscuits came out fantastically and were surprisingly easy to make. Of particular note, I LOVE the process of shredding the frozen butter in my food processor and then tossing it in the dry ingredients. It's so much easier than the whole pastry cutter or two knives debacle that I always seem to screw up (or ask my husband to finish for me).
Check out my Pumpkin Biscuits over at Onceamonthmom.com today for a real (and I think romantic) Valentine's Day treat.
We all loved these, and as I said, they were so much easier than I'd anticipated. They're great warm out of the oven, but I actually ended up surprisingly enjoying them even more cold. The taste and texture is incredible and the subtle pumpkin pie spice flavor gives the biscuits an unique kick.
