Seasonal Eating: Butternut Squash Biscuits

We don't often think to bake some of our favorite fall foods into delectable pastries and quick breads, but the results are shockingly good, like these hearty butternut squash biscuits. Biscuit dough is tinged with warm spices and lightly sweet butternut squash puree in this fall biscuit recipe from Pastry Affair.

Spread with cream cheese and enjoy at breakfast or alongside your favorite autumn stew.
