Maple Syrup Water Biscuits with Pumpkin Pie Pears

Do you ever wake up in the morning only to find yourself hungry? Yep, happens to me all the time. This morning was no different. I awoke and immediately wanted breakfast. I stumbled in the kitchen to start the water for the French press and started stalking my pantry and fridge. At first glance, the pantry and fridge looked as barren as the Mojave.  A few ingredients jumped out at me like I was their saving oasis in the middle of that dry, hot desert. I started yanking them down to make drop biscuits and gravy. I mixed together my dry ingredients, no sugar. That's no surprise, I rarely use the stuff. I used maple syrup instead. Now on to mixing the wet ingredients; no almond milk?! Well, now what the hell am I going to do about breakfast?

I am going to march forward, that's what I am going to do! I am no quitter. Check out the recipe below and make this breakfast. Mainly, because it's easy as pie, but also to see how mistakes and missing ingredients can make a dish better!

Maple Syrup Water Biscuits with Pumpkin Pie Pears

1/2 tsp salt
