Savory Pumpkin Sage Biscuits

Sharing is caring!

These sky-high and delicious savory pumpkin biscuits can be made in a flash with simple pantry ingredients and fresh sage. They’re deliciously easy and deliciously pleasing!

I’ve paired the flavor of pumpkin with the savory and subtle woodsy flavor of fresh sage, but feel free to substitute a different fresh herb or even dried herbs from your pantry if you like.

However, should you choose to use dried herbs as opposed to fresh, cut back on the quantity you use, as the flavor of dried herbs are considerably stronger than their fresh counterparts.

The ingredient list;

  • 100% Pure Pumpkin Puree
  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt
  • Fresh Sage Leaves (dried will also work)
  • Eggs
  • Buttermilk
  • Butter
  • Garlic

Why this easy pumpkin biscuit recipe works;

These savory biscuits don’t require any special tools or kitchen equipment.

A wooden spoon or spatula, a few bowls, a whisk, a muffin tin, and some non-stick cooking spray are basically all you’ll need to be successful.

This recipe makes nine extra-large savory biscuits but doubling the recipe is easy to do if nine biscuits aren’t enough.

That’s it! How much easier can you get?

Can these savory pumpkin rolls be frozen?


Cool them completely and then add them to a freezer-safe container, or large freezer zip-top bag in a single layer and freeze for up to two months.

To reheat from frozen;

  • Allow the biscuits to thaw completely.
  • To microwave; wrap each biscuit individually in paper towels and microwave on medium power until just warm.
  • To heat in the oven; preheat oven to 350-degrees. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 10-12 minutes until warm.

How to make savory pumpkin sage biscuits;

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, pumpkin puree, sage, and garlic.
