4 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup (2 sticks) cold butter, cut into small cubes
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons molasses
6 tablespoons heavy cream
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Recipe For the Pumpkin Glaze:
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
4 tablespoons canned pumpkin
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons heavy cream
For the biscuits: preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium sized mixing bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Stir in the brown sugar. Cut in the cold cubes of butter, using either a pastry blender or a fork until the mixture resembles bread crumbs. In a separate bowl combine the remaining ingredients and stir together. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined, then transfer the dough to a well-floured surface and knead just to bring everything together. Roll out the dough to about a 1/2-inch thickness; cut into rounds using a 2-inch cookie cutter or biscuit cutter and place on the prepared baking sheets.
Brush the tops of each biscuit with a little heavy cream then place in the preheated oven to bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before making the glaze.
For the glaze: Sift the powdered sugar into a small bowl. Stir in the pumpkin, spices, and heavy cream until well combined. Spread some of the glaze on the now cooled biscuits and allow it to dry before serving.
