1/4 t salt
1/4 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. allspice

Sift together flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices in a large bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together pumpkin and buttermilk. Add to flour mixture and stir to combine. Knead gently a few times. Roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness and cut using around biscuit or cookie cutter. Place biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet and sprinkle tops with remaining sugar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Autumn and pumpkins go hand and hand September 26, 2011
By SPRock
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great collection of recipes to kick off Fall. Not only are there good, basic recipes, there are also fun decorating tips included too. This cookbook will appeal to the experienced cook and baker as well as the less experienced one, who will appreciate the simplicity of ingredients and clearly written instructions. There's a good mix of recipes using both fresh pumpkin and canned pumpkin. Canned pumpkin isn't 100% pumpkin, but is in part squash. It gives a better texture to many baked goods and has a slightly sweeter taste than pumpkin only. It is easy enough to cook your own pumpkin and squash before mashing and substituting the amounts in a recipe calling for canned pumpkin. I do believe this cookbook would have been even better if it included detailed instructions for processing fresh pumpkin for cooks who haven't tried it before.
I would recommend taking a look at this cookbook if you like pumpkin; it has a really good number and variety of interesting recipes to enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Autumn Gem! September 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is truly a little sweet gem of a book for all the up and coming autumn get-to-gethers! I'm always looking for new recipes to try and this booklet does NOT disappoint!

It contains simple recipes like Apple-Pumpkin Butter and Sugar & Spice Pumpkin Seeds and baked recipes like Pumpkin Biscuits and Pumpkin Coffee Cake.

I was most thrilled to find Dinner in a Pumpkin, Pumpkin Chowder, Sweet Potato-filled pumpkin, October bisque, Autumn soup and Pumpkin Ice Cream pie. Well just about every recipe in this book I want to try, yes even the Pumpkin Fudge and Pumpkin Cobbler! Oh wait, did I mention that there is a recipe for Pumpkin Pie Spice? I'm so going to make this pronto! I really hate paying $4 for 2 oz. of this in the store. Now I have the recipe.

Get this book now! Yum Yum. Fall parties here I COME!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun suggestions plus diverse recipes! September 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Scented jack-o-lanterns? Glitter pumpkins? In between the recipes, there are great ideas in here for centerpieces, pumpkin decorations, and unique ways to use/carve/decorate standard pumpkins and varietal pumpkins outside of cooking.

The recipes are varied: everything from pumpkin seeds with interesting seasonings to pumpkin stew to pumpkin pancakes to pumpkin waffles to pumpkin doughnuts (also used to make ice cream sandwiches!)

Lots of imagination in this book! Perfect time of year to have this book. Enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat Disapointing October 8, 2011
By Ellie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Got this for my new kindle and once I had a chance to review the recipes, I was disapointed. The recipes don't give the caloric value and appears the recipes are extremely fatening and are designed for large families.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gooseberry Patch has done it again! September 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Our family loves everything about the Autumn time and we can't think of a better way to kick it off than with Gooseberry Patch. This is yet another good collection of recipes and little tips and tricks for everyone. Wether you are just starting out or you are more experienced this is a great collection.
If you have yet to experience Gooberry Patch and all the have to offer I highly recommend their cook books that are filled with yummy recipes along with many other ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilled with this cookbook! October 2, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to admit that I received this free from Amazon for my Kindle e-reader and downloaded it to have a few days ago. I read this last night and this morning and the recipes are great!! I luv the Pumpkin Biscuit recipe and this book has many ideas to decorate using pumpkins for fall with every recipe which are ingenious!!

I was using apple butter on my toast to save ingesting all the fat and be heart healthy and there is a recipe in their cookbook for Pumpkin Apple Butter and it looks great!! I am going to double the recipe and give this a go. Apples, apple juice, a tiny bit of brown sugar and some spices and voila! Now no extra sugar from a mass produced food. I did not know it was that easy to make and it will contain no preservative chemicals!!

Oh, I almost forgot to mention that the favorite decorating idea is the one with the centerpiece where you carve out small holes on the side with a potato peller.. take the top and insert whole cloves and then put in a votive candle and it will burn and smell wonderful for 6 hrs!! How nice for doing when company comes!!

I highly recommend this cookbook from Gooseberry Patch!

3.0 out of 5 stars Bought the Kindle Version April 26, 2012
By Jenks
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
By "bought" I mean it was free, so my three star review may not be entirely fair, but that's how I feel. The digital version of the cookbook is a little scattered at times. There are titles on some pages and pictures that don't match the content of the paragraphs and the table of contents is almost useless. The recipes are good though--I love pumpkin.

Most of the recipes found within the pages I already had on hand from other family members or friends. It was really a disappointment because I thought they were going to be more unique recipes. It would be great for a bride or beginning cook. If you have been at the cooking game for a while, don't bother.
