Soft Pumpkin Scones Recipe

My husband is a huge fan of pumpkin and we both love scones so this recipe for Soft Pumpkin Scones was a great combination.

This Pumpkin Scones Recipe produces a lightly flavored Pumpkin Scone that’s a nice subtle shade of orange. Our boys thought these were wonderful!

It will be on our “to make again” list for sure. I’m thinking it would be easy to stir in 1/3 cup raisins or pecans for a change of pace.
