Pumpkin Sage Biscuits

Ladies and Gentlemen. We have officially gotten to the 2 week countdown to Thanksgiving!

Pumpkin Sage Biscuits

I’ll be honest- Thanksgiving being a week earlier than usual is totally throwing me off. Every year for the past 7 years, I get my Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. It lasts just to Christmas day and then it immediately (like on the 26th) has to go for fear of a massive fire based on it’s bone dry needles. This year- I will have to wait a whole week after Thanksgiving to get our tree, or risk flames before the big day! The anticipation will be very painful for me. Patience is not my strong suite.

Pumpkin Sage Biscuits

I also feel like I barely have enough time to share all of the necessary recipes to help you through the Holiday! As I often do during this time of year, I think you can count on more posts than usual- as I really just can’t help myself when it comes to big family meals!

Pumpkin Sage Biscuits

And these tender pumpkin biscuits (delicately laced with sage) are a great place to start they would be so lovely all warm and puffy piled in a basket on your Thanksgiving table. The only thing that could make them more delicious is if they were slathered with homemade Fig Blue Cheese Butter. Mmmmm…..

Pumpkin Sage Biscuits

Also- a great thing about making these biscuits for Thanksgiving, is that instead of fooling with yeast (not that it isn’t worth it for some recipes!) you can pretty much slap these together in less than 10 minutes and then just bake them off as you are setting out your Thanksgiving buffet. 12 minutes later, they will be perfectly baked and ready for to eat piping hot!

To make these

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and prepare a sheet pan with a silpat or parchment.

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients and the sage. Using a pastry cutter or two forks, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until well combined (but there will still be small bits of butter visible).
