Why I Love This Recipe
I love the scones at Starbucks and had to copy their Pumpkin Scones. These taste very close.
Ingredients You'll Need
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour 1 egg
¼ cup packed brown sugar ½ cup canned pumpkin
2 tsp. baking powder 1/3 cup milk
1 ½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
¼ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
½ cup chilled margarine or butter
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt. With a pastry cutter, cut in margarine or butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture; set aside.
In another bowl, beat egg; beat in pumpkin and milk. Add egg mixture all at once into dry mixture. Using a fork, stir until just moistened.
On a lightly floured surface, quickly knead dough by folding and pressing gently for 10-12 strokes or until nearly smooth. Pat dough into an 8 inch circle. Cut into 12 wedges. On a greased baking sheet, place wedges 1 inch apart. Brush tops with additional milk and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake in 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove scones from baking sheet and cool on
