I am fully aware how late I am with a gratuitous pumpkin recipe. SO LATE I KNOW, YOU GUYS. 

But… my computer has been on the fritz for weeks and there were 5047 pies to make for Thanksgiving so I am asking for a pass, ok? Ok. Let’s stay friends at all costs even when I can’t get my life together enough to post a biscuit recipe on time. 

And it’s still technically fall and still technically pumpkin everything season right? Humor me. 

These biscuits are a riff on my regular buttermilk biscuits – tweaked a bit because it’s fall and because they are just gorgeous and because they will make your house smell like the best thing ever ever. 

And let’s also discuss this other little gem I’m including in this here late recipe post. Bourbon orange butter. {this is not a drill}

Sometimes I embarrass myself with my reactions to food. And then if you take it even further and add Bourbon then I will most definitely lose all reasonable control. You understand, yes? 

Biscuits are something you need to know how to make. This is a necessary skill even if you aren’t southern. Even if you are GF, Vegan, Paleo, Whatev. You need to have a go to biscuit recipe that you keep in your back pocket for when you’re feeling all cozy and domesticated. This, of course, is not your go-to biscuit recipe if you are GF/Vegan/Paleo… for that you’ll need to head over to the Minimalist Baker for The Best Damn Vegan Biscuits

This recipe is a simple buttermilk biscuit with the addition of pumpkin puree and some cinnamon to make it feel like all the best things about fall. YES LAWD. The butter is super simple… some good salted butter + orange zest + whatever bourbon you have on hand. If you don’t have Bourbon laying around I would say to just skip it. BUT I WON’T BECAUSE YOU NEED TO DRIVE TO THE ALPHABET STORE RIGHT THIS SECOND AND GET SOME BOURBON. 

I kid. Kinda.

The key to good biscuits is a gentle hand. Don’t beat the shit out of them when you’re mixing… that makes sad little hockey pucks. What you want is nice little fluffy pillows that will make your eyes roll back in your head. Yes now we are talking. 

Those layers are all the best things. {hyperbole awareness moment}
