If you have a can or two of pumpkin leftover from the holidays (or if you cooked your own pumpkin), here’s an easy, quick and absolutely delicious recipe for pumpkin drop biscuits. I made these, and they came out light, fluffy and so scrumptious that the kids and I cleared a plate of them in just a few minutes. Yeah…they’re that good!

Easy Pumpkin Drop Biscuits

Yield: 12 large biscuits. Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: 25 minutes Total time: 30 minutes


  • 2 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar or turbinado
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 stick of butter (softened)
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (1-8oz can)
  • 1/2-1 cup of milk


  1.  Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix together all dry ingredients with a mixer.
  3. Cut in the butter and then the pumpkin puree.
  4. Slowly add milk until it reaches a desired consistency. It should be doughy, but slightly wet.
  5. Using a spoon, drop spoon-sized dough balls onto a pre-greased cookie sheet or pan.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes.

These are delicious all on their own, or for some added scrumptious goodness, you can serve with cinnamon butter. The biscuits should come out light and fluffy.

  2. Do you use pumpkin from an 8oz can? I thought most pumpkin came in 15oz cans, but that is more like 2 cups. Just wanting to verify before I make. Thanks!

  3. Don’t have pumpkin pie spice. What would use? 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1/2 nutmeg?

  4. Try this Evangelia: 3 TB ground cinnamon, 2 tsp ginger, 2 tsp nutmeg, 1 1/2 tsp allspice and 1 1/2 tsp ground cloves.
