For the biscuits:

For the citrus honey butter:

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 3 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon zest of desired citrus I'd use either all orange zest or do a combination of orange and lemon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a baking sheet with non stick cooking spray or melted butter and set aside.
  • In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cinnamon. Using a fork or pastry cutter, blend cold butter cubes into dry ingredients until it is similar to coarse meal. Stir in milk*, pumpkin and vanilla until all ingredients are equally moist and flour is incorporated.
  • Drop by heaping tablespoon onto greased baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until bottoms have browned slightly. (Don't forget: less time in the oven for smaller biscuits! Check 'em at 14 or 15)
  • While biscuits are baking, whip butter, honey and zest together until smooth and light in color, about 2 minutes.
  • Serve biscuits warm with citrus honey butter


*If you wanted to cut these biscuits out rather then do a drop biscuit, then use the lesser amount of milk. The dough will be less sticky and easier to work with. Flour your board liberally, roll out to be 1-1 1/2 inches thick and cut. Bake the same time.
