In honor of fall, pumpkin scones. I like mine with chocolate chips instead of raisins!
Joy of Baking is my very favorite baking website. Anything classic or unusual you could possibly want to make is here and she's got everything you could possibly ever want to know about high tea!! I found her recipe for pumpkin scones three years ago and have been making them ever since.
Now, a few things I do differently:
1) I never put the egg wash on it. I can't get over the feeling it's a waste of an egg. Usually I brush the top with some water and sprinkle some sugar or cinnamon sugar on and it works just fine.
2) Instead of cutting the 7" circle into 6 parts, I cut mine into 8 parts. I think my circle might be slightly larger (don't know why) but I cut it in half, then into quarters, then each quarter into half, so there's eight triangles.
3) I bake them 8 minutes at first and then in 4 or 5 minute increments after that, because I'm paranoid I'm going to burn them. Scones are some of my very favorite treats so I watch them like a hawk while they're baking.
I hope you like them.
