These whole wheat pumpkin biscuits are great for breakfast. Serve them with butter and honey for a real treat.

3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1 cup 100% pumpkin (Not the pumpkin pie mix)
1/4 cup or 4 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup buttermilk
In a large mixing bowl combine whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ginger.  Mix well with wire whisk.  Add pumpkin, butter and buttermilk and mix well with a spoon.  Pour dough onto a well floured board and pat out with your hands. (I don’t try to roll this out).  Cut with a biscuit cutter, glass, cookie cutter or whatever you use to make biscuits.  Lightly spray baking sheet. Place biscuits on sheet and bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.  Can brush with melted butter on tops.  Makes about 15 biscuits depending on the size you make them.  Enjoy!
