Whole Wheat Pumpkin Scones

Pin It

The pumpkin train is still going on strong in my house! Between the many pumpkin dishes and fun Halloween goodies we are baking, my kids are really enjoying mommy’s fun creations out of the kitchen! I personally adore scones. Maybe it is because I love all things rustic. And after many scones turning into leaded weights, I was thrilled with how these whole wheat pumpkin scones turned out.

I remember the first time I made scones. I honestly didn’t know what I was doing. The temptation to over mix your dough is great. I mean, when you make pizza dough, you are told to beat the heck out of your dough, right?

But like biscuits, scones don’t like to man-handled too much. Which makes these imperfect looking baked treats even more delicious in my book! Less work? WOOHOO!

I used some of my own oven-roasted pumpkin, which I was too lazy to mash to a completely smooth consistency. So along with my bits of dried cranberries and pistachios, I also had bites of pumpkin, too. I loved how it all turned out.

Although I am still missing my summer, especially my summer fruits, I’ve jumped head first into fall. With the smell of cinnamon and nutmeg mixed in with pumpkin, apples and pears, my house is all about the great fall flavors!

    Scones are a very different shape in Australia, round and high. Your recipe looks so inspiring I love the whole wheat and the dried cranberries, it looks very 'healthy' also your photos are superb. Yours Audax in Sydney Australia.
