Pumpkin Biscuits & Julia Child’s Cookbook!!!

19 Feb

Hello everyone,

I hope your all having a great day! My husband  bought me an early Birthday present, (it’s  in June). He bought the cookbook I have been wanting to get for a very long time. It’s the (Mastering the Art of French Cooking) by Julia Child, I’m so excited. I don’t know yet what I’ll make from it, so far I’m loving it.  

I finally found the cake I’ll be making for the vet this weekend. It was on  Wilton’s cake site. It’s using the Lil’ Pirate pan and making him look like he’s in the Navy. I think it will turn out really cute. I just hope he like’s it!!! I need to deliver it on Tuesday. I also have an appt with my specialist that day. We’ll see if she’ll let me get off the steroids, I’m praying that will happen.  My leg is doing a lot better, Ray and I went to Wal-Mart and did some much needed shopping tonight, so far my leg feels fine…

Here’s a recipe for my Pumpkin biscuits, I won Best in Show at the State fair, I was very surprised, but happy!!! 🙂

Pumpkin Biscuits

4, cups all-purpose flour

2, tblsp. baking powder

2, tsp. salt

1/4, cup packed brown sugar

1, cup butter unsalted (2 sticks) cold, cut into cubes

1, cup pure pumpkin

1- 1/2 cups buttermilk

Combine first 4 ingredients. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until crumbly.

Stir together the pumpkin and buttermilk; add to dry ingredients. Stirring just until moistened.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 3 to 4 times. Pat or roll to

half-inch thickness. Cut dough with a 3-inch round cutter, and place biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet.

Bake at 425 for 10 to 15 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown. Yield 14 biscuits.
