Another fall day with another pumpkin recipe…you wouldn’t think it was fall being that it was 85 out today and here I am sweating in the kitchen baking!  As an artist I suffer so all of you can enjoy my recipes…lol.   I wanted to incorporate pumpkin into a savory biscuit so I thought up this easy recipe, I added pepitas for nice texture and a bit of heat with the ancho chili powder and when you slather the chipotle honey butter on these puppies you will go cross-eyed, they are so good; you will want to make these every fall for your holiday table….I won’t tell if you even dip them in your gravy!

This recipe makes 16 good sized biscuits; I used a cookie scoop to drop them on the sheet pan.
