Ingredients

Pumpkin Scones:
2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup pumpkin (if canned, be sure there are no spices or sugar added)
1 tsp vanilla extract


Mix together flour, sugar, spices, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Cut butter into small pieces and cut into flour. Mixture should look like coarse crumbs. In a separate bowl mix together the pumpkin, buttermilk and vanilla. Add to flour mixture and mix until the dough comes together (don't over-mix).


Transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead gently 3-4 times, and then shape/pat dough into a circle about 1 1/2 inches thick. Slice in half, and then cut each half into 3 equal pie-shaped wedges. Brush with egg glaze (1 egg beaten with 1 tbsp milk), and sprinkle with Turbinado sugar.


( Turbinado Sugar is a dark brown fine-grained crunchy sweetener made by the concentration of sugarcane juice WITHOUT the use of any chemicals).


Bake on a cookie sheet for @ 375° for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.



Optional: Add white chocolate chips and/or chopped pecans.



Pumpkin Spice Butter:


1/4 cup (half a stick) butter, softened


1/4 cup pumpkin puree


1 tbsp brown sugar


1 tsp cinnamon


1/8 tsp nutmeg


1/8 tsp allspice



Combine all and mix till creamy.
