Perfectly pumpkin scones

    1 hour 30 min

    These are easy and delicious! The pumpkin also allows you to use less butter than a typical scone, making for a healthier treat. Make sure your pumpkin is cold though :) Learn from my error - if it is warm it makes for a super sticky dough - still works out delicious.

    Used different ingredients. I added some shedded cheese, about half a cup. Just for something different! Taste great!  -  29 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    I had to add a bit more flour, as the dough was too sticky.  -  03 Nov 2012  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
