Pumpkin Walnut Biscuits

1 3/4 c flour
3 T sugar,
1 T baking powder
3/4 t salt
3/4 t cinnamon
3/4 t ground ginger
5 T cold butter, cut into pieces
1/2 c finely chopped walnuts
1/2 c light cream
1/3 c solidly packed pumpkin
1 1/2 T honey

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, b powder, salt, cinnamon, and ginger. Use your fingertips to work in butter. Keep mixing until ingredients resemble coarse crumbs. In a smaller bowl, whisk together cream, pumpkin and honey. Make a well in dry ingredients and pour the liquid into it. Stir briskly until dough pulls together, then let it sit for 3 minutes. Flour your hands and work surface. Gently knead the dough into a ball, then pat into a 1 inch thick disk. Cut into squares or use a round biscuit cutter or drinking glass. Place on lightly sprayed cookie sheet. Bake biscuits on the center oven rack until light golden brown, about 20 minutes. Makes 12 biscuits.
