Autumn scone recipe

Making these delicious pumpkin scones is easy when it’s pumpkin harvest time, or even when it’s not.

Here is the recipe with 10 variations for icings, spreads, and cream cheese spreads. They're great for a school bake sale or church event.

Makes 6 large or 12 small scones

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper

Sift together

2 and 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1/2 teaspoon strong cinnamon

with 1/2 cup brown sugar. If you choose low calorie or alternative sweetener like stevia, please check their conversion recommendations.

Add 1/2 cup (1 stick) of chilled butter chopped into small pieces (soy or vegan margarine works great also). Gently work the flour-butter mixture with a pastry blender until the dough looks like coarse meal.

Tip: Overworking the dough makes these easy pumpkin scones tough or heavy. Be gentle working in the butter/margarine and only knead the dough once.

In a separate bowl, beat together

1/2 cup low-fat milk, buttermilk, or soy milk

3/4 cup homemade or canned plain pumpkin puree

Add to flour mixture and stir just until blended.

If you are making large triangular scones, pat the dough into a circle on a floured board and cut into wedges.

If you are making small scones, divide the dough in half and pat into two rounds, then cut into wedges.

Place on the baking sheet, bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden. Cool on wire racks. Serve warm.
