Glazed Pumpkin Scones

I was recently asked if I had a pumpkin scone recipe. While there were a lot of scone recipes in my files, I was surprised that there wasn’t a pumpkin one. So of course that meant I had to develop one right away. It is after all pumpkin season!

My recipe yields seven round large scones. I added dark raisins to mine, but you can certainly leave them out if you prefer. I also added a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg for flavor and buttermilk for a tender crumb. These scones turned out fluffy, light and full of pumpkin flavor. Sarah, I hope you enjoy them!
