Butternut Squash Biscuits

These are by far the best biscuit I have ever had! They are moist and slightly sweet from the squash and the little addition of honey to the mix.

I made them to go with our roasted chicken and veggies... they would also go fantastic with any type of pork... something salty and sweet like an oven baked ham? Or maybe with some pork roast and apple chutney? (Apple Chutney recipe will be coming soon!)

We also had some delish honey and cinnamon butter to spread over them while they were hot... Oh man! I ate 2 more for breakfast slathered in that honey butter goodness!

Butternut Squash Biscuits

2 1/4 cup flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup mashed squash
1/3 cup half and half
1 tbs honey


Sift four, baking powder and salt together. With a pastry blender cut in shortening until its crumbly. Then fold in Squash, half and half and honey. With your clean cooking hands work the dough until it is blended about 8 kneads..

Roll out about 1/2- 3/4 inch thick. Cut with biscuit cutter or glass (or canning jar like me!)

Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 425 for  12-16 minutes.

Enjoy =)


  1. Those biscuits look soft and fluffy and incredibly tempting with the honey butter on top! Wishing I had some for my own breakfast now.

  2. these sound just delicious - i love the twist of adding squash to 'em. what a great idea!

  3. Oh YUUUM! I have some cinnamon honey butter in my fridge...and I've never blogged about it. Yours, and those biscuits, look sooo wonderful. How far away from me do you live? lol Thanks much for your nice comment at my blog today. I'm a big big fan of browned butter frosting too! =) Stop by again soon. I am certainly a BAKEAHOLIC by nature too....

  4. I made these yesterday using soy creamer and agave in place of half and half and honey.They were amazing, thank you!

  5. Delish! Best recipe out there, thank you! I swapped 1 cup of mashed white beans for 1 cup flour to add some protein and cut calories, and added a dash of pumpkin pie spice and the kids gobbled them up.
