Jami Nolen

September 27, 2009

 

Yield

14 servings (serving size: 1 biscuit)

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons chilled Smart Balance Light, cut into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup fat-free buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 3 tablespoons honey

 

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt in a large bowl; cut in Smart Balance with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Chill 10 minutes.
  3. Combine buttermilk and honey, stirring with a whisk until well blended; add canned pumpkin. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture; stir just until moist.
  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 times. Roll dough into a (1/2-inch-thick) 9 x 5–inch rectangle; dust top of dough with flour. Fold dough crosswise into thirds (as if folding a piece of paper to fit into an envelope). Reroll dough into a (1/2-inch-thick) 9 x 5–inch rectangle; dust top of dough with flour. Fold dough crosswise into thirds; gently roll or pat to a 3/4-inch thickness. Cut dough with a 1 3/4-inch biscuit cutter to form 14 dough rounds.
  5. Place dough rounds, 1 inch apart, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 400 for 14 minutes or until golden. Remove from pan; cool 2 minutes on wire racks. Serve warm.
