Pumpkin Biscuits--gluten free

I got this recipe online and make reference to whom it belongs ;-). They are one of my favorite gluten free snacks. These look dry but they are NOT!! They are moist . I think next time I will add a bit of ginger and less cloves than I did put in them. Ps. Some people do not realize that buckwheat is gluten free. I love these--the second time I used a pinch of allspice instead of the cloves. I like allspice better! NOTE": I usually double this recipe--if I double it it makes about 9 normal size biscuits

1/2 c. brown rice flour
1/4 c. buckwheat flour
dash sea salt
1 T. aluminum free baking powder
heaping 1/4 c. raw canned pumpkin
1 t. vanilla
1 T. extra virgin olive oil
4 T. water

liberal T. cinnamon
1 t. nutmeg
3-4 cloves (I gave a pinch--the second time I did a pinch of allspice--great!) Note: I prefer allspice.

For sweet biscuits, add:
2 T. natural brown sugar (I DEFINITELY ADD THE SUGAR!!! and I like it with additional honey when serving or sugar I have sprinkled on the top)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a large cookie sheet with nonstick spray. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix in pumpkin and water until a thick, pasty dough forms. Make biscuit-balls by rolling the dough into circles between your palms. Drop the biscuits onto the cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool.

thank you Robin for giving me a good laugh this morning with your comment about the marshmellows in the background of the photo. I really needed a laugh in my life and did not even know it.

Made these and they came out tasting like baking powder. I seem to run into this problem a lot with GF biscuit recipes. Guess I'll decrease it next time? Anyone else have this problem?

Lalaith, I have not noticed this, but I do add sugar and often serve with honey. The type of spices you use can affect the taste. I prefer the allspice to the straight cloves.
