Best Buttermilk Biscuits

This is the best recipe I've found for buttermilk biscuits! Soooo good. Love the texture-a little crispy on outide and very moist inside.

2 c flour
3 t baking powder
2 t sugar
1/2 t cream of tartar
1/4 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/2 c cold butter, sliced
3/4 c buttermilk (or more)

-You can do this in your food processor or in a bowl. Mix all dry ingredients then add butter slices. Pulse until coarse crumbs or use pastry cutter. Add buttermilk and mix just until it comes together. I needed to add a little more buttermilk to mine as it was a little dry.
-Put dough on floured surface, roll out with rolling pin just a little and cut out biscuits.
-Put on greased baking sheet and bake at 500 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
-Makes approximately 12 medium biscuits.

Pumpkin Pie Dessert Cake

Ok girls.  Here is another delicious one!!  This tastes like pumpkin pie, but with a sweet buttery-goodness crust!!  It's really yummy!

1 large can pumpkin
1 T pumpkin pie spice (can do 2t cinn, 1/2 t each ginger, nutmeg and allspice to replace)
4 eggs
1 can evaporated milk
1/4 t salt
1 1/2 c sugar
Mix all ingredients. Pour into 9x13 pan.  Bake 30 minutes at 350. (I baked mine almost 40 min. because the middle wasn't set) Mix 1 yellow cake mix with 1 cube butter til crumbly.  (My sis and I agree it needs 1 1/2 cubes butter to get good results.  1 cube leaves it dry.)  Put on top of pumpkin mixture.  Bake in oven 30 minutes more.  Serve room temp with dollop of  whipped cream.  Enjoy!!
