In need of a little pick-me-up? How about a warm, light, flakey, spiced pumpkin scone, it’s finally the weekend!
Our family had these for Thanksgiving breakfast. They took my mom 20 minutes to whip up, and even shorter for my family to devour all of them. Needless to say, I didn’t have much time to snap photos before the vultures (my siblings) swooped in.
Before you get baking, let me explain how easy scones are to make. Maybe because the word ‘scone’ sounds British and intimidating, people are afraid to tackle scones. But in reality they are one of the easiest pastries to make. No waiting for the dough to rise, no work the night before. Just as simple as making a batch of cookies. I promise! And totally customizable. A basic scone is butter flavoured, so you can get creative, and fruit preserve, nut, spice, or herb combination you can dream of!
Enjoy! Fall won’t last long!
