Mini-Byte: Pumpkin Scones
Thursday, October 18, 2007
This is a little Mini-Byte, dedicated to my new blogger buddy, Belinda from What's Cooking in a Southern Kitchen. I was visiting her site the other day, when I came across her lovely post about her Heart Scones. They looked so good that I was drooling all over my keyboard! I had to make them. She told me to go for it, and I did.
Just for fun, I decided to make the scones in pumpkin shapes, since Halloween is rapidly approaching. I used Belinda's recipe, which you can find by following the link above. I substituted 1/4 cup of brown sugar for the same amount of white sugar. I also added a pinch of pumpkin pie spice. To make it a little interesting, I put a little orange food coloring in the mix. I think I could have used even more. I served the scones with apricot preserves and a dollop of creme fraiche. They were as good as I hoped they'd be.
