Pumpkin Parmesan Biscuits
Pumpkin Parmesan Biscuits

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
4 ounces (8 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes, plus 2
tablespoons melted
1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree
1/4 cup heavy cream


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and nutmeg.
Stir in 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese.  Using a pastry blender, cut the
butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

In a small bowl, stir together the pumpkin puree and cream; pour into the flour
mixture.  Use a wooden spoon or your hands to combine the mixture into a
soft dough.

Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface.  Roll the dough to a 3/4-inch
disk.  Cut out the biscuits using a 2-inch round cutter.  Arrange the biscuits 2-
inchs apart on the prepared baking sheets.  Brush the tops with melted butter
and sprinkle some of the remaining Parmesan over each.  Bake until golden,
15 to 20 minutes.  Allow the biscuits to cool slightly before serving.
