Pumpkin Pecan Scones

Pumpkin Pecan Scones

Can you believe it’s Pumpkin Latte Season?  

And in order to keep up with the fall festivities, I decided to make some deeeeeelicious Pumpkin Pecan Scones!

 

Pumpkin Pecan Scones

And these aren’t your typical hard textured, crumbly dry scone. 

These are soft, moist and pillowy.

Spiced with nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon, the batter is perfectly mixed and rustically formed to create a dozen of these goodies.

Have them for breakfast with your morning coffee, or indulge in an after-dinner dessert.  Either way, you will not be disappointed. 

In fact you’ll want to make more!
