Moist Pumpkin Scones Recipe

Publisher Photo
After trying a pumpkin scone at a coffee house, I was inspired to look for a recipe to try at home. The glaze nicely complements the pumpkin flavor.

MY REVIEW

"If you know scones and the texture and density than you will be disappointed in this recipe! This was more of a recipe for pumpkin bread. It did more pumpkin, but put it in bread pans."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 20, 2014

"It was just ok in my opinion. There really was not nearly enough pumpkin in the recipe. They were much more moist than your average scone but basically tasted like a wad of bread dough... Flavorless."

MY REVIEW

"I made these for my mom's birthday this morning. Followed the recipe almost exactly. And they turned out great! The pumpkin flavouring is very subtle in a good way, and they are a beautiful fall colour. Definitely a fantastic way to kick off autumn. I just hope my mom likes them as much as I do!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 18, 2014

"Very tasty! I added a couple of tablespoons of melted butter to the icing plus maple flavoring."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 13, 2013

"I thought they tasted very good, but the batter was very sticky. Had to flour my knife and my board several times so it/they wouldn't stick. They puffed up very nicely, so think the next time I make them, will make the circles a little larger."
