These sweet pumpkin spice biscuits with vanilla glaze were dreamed up while I was thinking about what to make for breakfast last Sunday. I was thinking about making some classic baking powder biscuits, or maybe even making a pan full of ooey gooey monkey bread. And then I got to thinking about another family-favorite, comfort food recipe, iced cinnamon-raisin biscuits. All of those sounded so good to me, and I knew it had to be biscuits, but I wanted seasonal, pumpkin spice twist with my biscuits (I know, the season is winding down, but I’m not over it yet!).
I have an older post with my recipe for a scratch-made cinnamon and sugar monkey bread on this blog, but the other two recipes listed above are not currently in the index here. The truth is, I haven’t made any biscuit recipe in a long while, but there’s nothing like the holidays to get me in the mood for baking up some comforting, old favorites. (I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one with this association!) However, now that I’ve brought them up, I’m going to try my best to share both of those biscuit recipes with you all before Christmas.
These pumpkin spice biscuits are truly a quick and simple treat. I made a basic baking powder biscuit dough and added a good helping of pumpkin puree and warm spices to it. The icing on these was inspired by those iced cinnamon-raisin biscuits I mentioned earlier.
This time around I used canned organic pumpkin puree, but if you prefer to make it with homemade pumpkin puree I’ve shared a step-by-step tutorial on how to make your own pumpkin puree in an older post.
These iced biscuits were a hit with my crew (okay, anything with icing is bound to be a hit with my crew!) and we will definitely have them on the menu again soon. I sure hope you all like them, if you try them. I really do think these pumpkin spice biscuits with vanilla glaze will make a delicious breakfast treat any day of the week, but I hope a pumpkin spice twist on a classic will make any day feel like holiday.
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
