Tis the Season for PUMPKIN!

November 11, 2011

I go bananas over PUMPKIN!  (can one go pumpkins over pumpkins)?  Hm…

Annnyways, I can personally contest to a bad Scone experience-or a few rather.  It’s not pleasant.  It’s my personal belief that Scones should be moist, tender, & soft.  The contrary is seen in a lot of Scones, be it coffee shops, bakeries, etc.  It’s my personal promise that if you can master these, it’ll be love at first bite.  The type of experience that will hook you as a loyal lover of this almighty triangle of warm goodness for.ever. period.

Assembling the DRY:
2 cups Flour
1 cup Sugar
1 ts Baking Powder
1/2 ts Salt
1/8 ts Cream of Tarter

Wet:
1/2 cup full fat Sour Cream + 1/2 ts Baking Soda (allow to bubble together)
1 regular sized Egg
2.5 oz straight up Pumpkin Puree (not filling) + 1 ts Pumpkin Spice

THEN:
Cut in 1 stick of Butter into the Dry mixture.

Slather the tops with:
1/2 cup Brown
1 tb Pumpkin Spice (or Cinnamon if you don’t have it)
1/2 stick of Butter

I enjoyed mine with 2 cups of PG tips.
The next day, I had them with Milk.
The third day, there were none left 😦
