When I think of scones, I think of a fancy dessert-for-breakfast pastry. Prior to this, I had never attempted to bake scones because it just seemed a little out of my league. However, I'm delighted to say that these pumpkin scones are so easy. They come together so quickly and are sure to impress. This would be a great fall gift for new neighbors or the perfect family breakfast around Thanksgiving.
The pumpkin flavor wasn't overwhelming, and they are so good right out of the oven. They'll keep fresh in an air-tight container on the counter for a few days, but I doubt they'll last that long!
- In prior recipes that require cutting in butter, I've used two knives. However, I did end up ordering a pastry cutter from Amazon, and let me tell you it makes it so much easier, and I got to keep my hands clean. This is the set I ordered, it also came with the pastry dough scraper which made it very easy to cut the scones. Worth the $10!
- I also finally bit the bullet and ordered some cooling racks. These are a really nice size and are super easy to store. Using the cooling racks ensures that the bottoms don't overcook if they're left on the pan or get soggy if they're set on a plate while cooling.
- Here are the silpat mats I use, also a game-changer. No longer messing with lining my pans and super easy clean up. Plus they're on sale!
