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...
