I am partnering with King Arthur today to bring you all this 4 ingredient recipe for soft & fluffy Easy Pumpkin Cream Biscuits. As always, all opinions expressed below are 100% my own.
Brace yourself, my friends. The season of all things pumpkin is almost upon us! And quite frankly, I have been having a hard time not sharing this recipe for Easy Pumpkin Cream Biscuits with you all sooner. But I figured I should at least wait until it was almost September. ;) August 28th is close enough, right?
I have actually been in the kitchen for a couple of weeks now creating and then photographing a few pumpkin recipes to share with you all on the blog a little later on. Granted, it felt a little strange whipping up pumpkin recipes in the middle of August, but deadlines are deadlines and often brands want recipes for Halloween & Thanksgiving a couple of months ahead of the curve. But I haven't been complaining! I adore pumpkin... and fall... and baking for the fall holidays. :)
First up for Fall 2015? These super simple, soft & thick Easy Pumpkin Cream Biscuits. And when I say easy, I really mean easy, folks. Thanks to the good folks at King Arthur, I just became a self-rising flour convert. I brushed off self-rising flour before simply because I thought how hard could it be to add a few ingredients to flour myself and be done with it? But I found something out real quick after receiving and using my first bag of King Arthur Self-Rising Flour- the right self-rising flour makes THE BEST homemade biscuits...
Easy Pumpkin Cream Biscuits
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15-18 minutes
Ingredients (12-17 medium biscuits)
- 2 cups King Arthur Unbleached Self-Rising Flour
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Grease the inside of a 12-inch cast iron skillet. (Alternatively, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.) Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cream & pumpkin puree. In a smaller mixing bowl, whisk together the self-rising flour and cinnamon. Add the flour/cinnamon mixture to the pumpkin/cream mixture , and stir until a cohesive dough forms.
Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface.
Roll or pat the dough into a disc 3/4" to 1" thick; the thicker the disc, the taller the biscuits.
Using a 2" cutter (or the size of your choice) to cut out rounds. Place the biscuits in your greased cast iron skillet or parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush the tops of the biscuits with a little cream or milk, if desired; this will help brown their crust.
**Tip from King Arthur- Freeze your cut-out biscuit dough for up to 20 minutes before baking to improve texture and rise.
Bake the biscuits for 15 to 18 minutes, until they're golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and serve immediately with butter and honey, if desired.

Not only was this my first time baking homemade biscuits with self-rising flour, but it also happened to be my first time ever making biscuits with heavy cream. Usually I am a buttermilk biscuit type of gal- real butter and buttermilk. Instead of the crisp, flakiness I was used to with homemade biscuits, these Pumpkin Cream Biscuits were light, fluffy, and pillowy soft. I think I will be making homemade biscuits using cream a little more often. Plus no butter means no wrestling with a pastry cutter. Less work and less elbow grease always makes me happy... ;)
And what may be the best thing about these Easy Pumpkin Cream Biscuits is just how versatile they are. You can serve these savory alongside a bowl of hearty chili. Or drizzle them with honey or a simple cream cheese glaze, and these biscuits instantly become a sweet treat.
