I love scones. I’m not sure why. There are certainly richer, more savagely delicious treats than scones. Perhaps, I just love the idea of scones, nibbling on one while sipping hot tea and perhaps reading a book or solving a mystery. (Can anyone say Miss Jane Marple?)
Regardless of the reason, they are tasty. And, unless you’re a food masochist, they’re easy to make. I made pumpkins scones after I saw this recipe from the Food Network little booklet of 50 canned pumpkin recipes.
- 2 cups flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 stick of cold butter, cubed
- 2/3 cup solid pack pumpkin
- ¾ cup cream
Pat into an 8-inch square on a floured surface, then cut into 16 triangles. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees F, 20 minutes.
