Pumpkin Scone Recipes Perfect for the Season
We love to use pumpkins to decorate in the fall, but we also love to use them in our baking. Along with farm-fresh apples, sweet potatoes, and pecans, pumpkins find their way into our favorite fall treats: pies, breads, and cakes. When baking with pumpkin, whether you are making a pie or a pan of easy pumpkin scones, be sure and read the recipe thoroughly so you know whether you need a can of pumpkin or a can of pumpkin pie filling. A simple can of pumpkin is just that – pumpkin and nothing more. When baking with this product, you will add sweetener, usually sugar or honey, and spices, such as cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Pumpkin pie filling, however, is pumpkin with added spices and sugar. So check your recipe before you head to the grocery store so you will purchase the correct product. If you are making some easy scones, your recipe may call for pumpkin pie spice. This convenient product, found in your spice aisle, is a lovely blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice, those same spices you usually put in a pumpkin recipe. So whether you use pumpkin, pumpkin pie filling, or pumpkin pie spice, grab your apron and mixing bowl and get ready for some fabulous fall baking. We love all things pumpkin, so we spent some time on our favorite food blogs and rounded up a few of our favorite pumpkin scone recipes. There is a delicious gluten-free version of the popular Starbucks scone, and one made with roasted fresh pumpkin. Check out this lineup of some delicious pumpkin scones.
