Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Biscuits with Cream Cheese Icing


“Pajamas and pancakes” is an Embry family tradition. Over the past couple of years my family has requested pancakes for breakfast any day that my husband, Adam, has off work. All three kids love the fun and yummy breakfast treat. Sadly one morning I discovered that I didn’t have all the ingredients to make pancakes in my kitchen. That is when I turned to my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook in search of a suitable substitute. I found a breakfast biscuit recipe and tweaked it to make it my own. I think that the kids are just about as excited about biscuits for breakfast as pancakes!

Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Biscuits with Cream Cheese Icing

3 cups flour

1/2 cup wheat bran

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon pumpkin spice seasoning

1 cup butter, cubed

1 1/3 cups milk

In large mixing bowl combine flour, wheat bran, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin spice seasoning. Cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in milk a little at a time and fluff with a fork. When all of the mixture is just moistened turn onto a floured countertop and roll 1 inch thick. Cut with a biscuit cutter and bake at 450 for 15-20 minutes. Top with Cream Cheese Icing.
