Pumpkin Ginger Scones Recipe
“I made these lovely scones one day when looking for a way to use up leftover pumpkin, and I was not disappointed,” recalls Brenda Jackson of Garden City, Kansas. TIP: Brenda often uses her food processor to stir up the dough just until it comes together. “It so simple to prepare this way,” she assures.
