Easy Pumpkin Scones

Happy Thursday!!!

My Thursday just got much better after I tasted these scones!  I was a bit nervous about making pumpkin scones, but I am so happy that I gave it a shot.  These scones were easy to make a taste great delicious!!!

2 cups all-purpose flour (plus some for kneading)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup Greek yogurt (I used non-fat vanilla)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup milk 

Preheat your oven to 400.

Lightly grease a baking sheet.  I spray foil with non-stick cooking spray and put it on a pizza pan.

Dice up the cold butter.

In a mixing bowl, add flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and diced butter.  Mix until it resembles coarse cornmeal. 
Add in Greek yogurt and pumpkin puree.  Once that has is just starting to incorporate into the dry ingredients, SLOWLY, add the milk.  Immediately stop the mixer once the batter has just come together.  


Lightly flour a surface and pull out you dough.  

Roll the dough around (really, it is not so much of a knead, as it is 'playing' with the dough).  Continue to lightly roll it around until the dough is not so sticky, and pat it down into a circle.  Just use your hands for this, there is no need for a rolling pin!

Spray a butter knife with non-stick cooking spray, and cut the dough into even triangles. 

Place the triangles on your prepared baking sheet, and place in your preheated oven.  

Let them bake for 15-18 minutes.  They should be golden on top.  I also poke mine with my finger to make sure they don't feel wet on the inside.

I hope you all get a chance to enjoy this recipe!

~Best Wishes~
