Title: Pumpkin-black walnut biscuits
Yield: 6 Servings
2 c Unbleached all purpose flour
1/4 ts Ground allspice
2 tb Sugar
1/2 c Butter, cold
1 tb Baking powder
1/3 c Finely chopped black walnuts
1 ts Baking soda
2/3 c Canned or mashed cooked
1/4 ts Salt
1/2 c Buttermilk, or a bit more if
1/4 ts Ground cinnamon
1/4 ts Grated nutmeg
"A batch of these intriguingly flavored biscuits is a nice addition
to any meal. This particular biscuit has a tendency to overbrown on
the bottom, so use a light-colored metal baking sheet instead of a
nonstick sheet. Serve the biscuits hot with butter."
Preheat oven to 450 F. Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder
and soda, salt, and spices into a large bowl. Cut in the butter (or
use food processor) until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add
the nuts. In a small bowl, whisk together the pumpkin and buttermilk.
Add it to the flour mixture and stir to combine. The dough will be
quite stiff and not all the flour will be incorporated. Turn the
dough out onto a lightly floured cloth and knead gently a few times
to work in the rest of the flour. Roll out the dough to a 1/2 inch
thickness and cut with a 2 inch round cutter. Transfer the biscuits
to a lightly oiled shiny baking sheet, and sprinkle tops with sugar.
Bake for 10 minutes--do not let them get too brown. Serve immediately
with butter. If you must have jelly with the, choose a delicate apple
jelly so the subtle pumpkin flavor is not masked.
