Pumpkin Scones

October 04, 2013

Hello pumpkin season!  Pumpkin, pumpkin, everywhere.  Yep, I know..it's October and you are getting bombarded with pumpkin recipes from bloggers all over.   It's here too. I hope you don't mind.  Not too much.  Just a few little scones and maybe something else in the next few weeks..that's it.   Maybe. We'll see. Don't hold me to anything solid.


You see, I have a 6 year old  with a bit of a pumpkin obsession right now.  He wants pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pie, pumpkin pancakes.  It is definitely his season and he is a happy little man now.  Now, these scones did turn out to be a favorite of not only my 6 year old, but, the whole family.  They are light, fluffy, and have a nice pumpkin flavor without being too overly-pumpkin for anyone who is not a huge pumpkin lover (note: many kids in my family).

They are perfect for the fall season...
