just a little pumpkin scone

Scones are ridiculously easy to make and I have been craving them recently but with strawberries being out of season the ones I usually make didn’t sound like such a good idea.  I did have some pureed pumpkin leftover from a recent pumpkin pancake breakfast so I thought I would try my hand at whipping up some chocolate chip pumpkin scones!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Scones:

~ 2 cups of flour

~ 4 tablespoons of sugar

~ 1/2 cup of pureed pumpkin

~ 3 tbsp of butter softened

~ 2 tsp of baking powder

~ 1/2 tsp of salt

~ 1/2 tsp of all spice

~ 1 tbsp of ground cinnamon

~ 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice

~ 2/3 cup of half and half

~ half a cup of chocolate chips

Mix flour, sugar, spices, baking powder and salt together.  Incorporate butter and pumpkin.  Add chocolate chips and half and half, mixing carefully.  If you are using a stand mixer as I did, you make need to work it with your hands towards the end, making sure to flour your hands because the dough is super sticky!  On a floured surface, shape the dough into a circle approximately 6 inches in diameter (maybe a little bigger).  Cut into 6 wedges and place on a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 20 minutes.
