White Chocolate Pumpkin Scones

Tried a new recipe this morning. White chocolate pumpkin scones. Oh my. I want to make them again tomorrow. They are so good! Next time I will double the recipe. Because my four boys gobbled them up so fast that my poor hubby didn’t even get one. There was not even a crumb left. The only reason he knew I made them was that when he came upstairs from his office, the terrific aroma still lingered in the air. Sorry honey!

So if you like pumpkin, or white chocolate, or both (like me!), you should really try these scones. Like right now. They will warm up your kitchen and make your house smell great. And they will make your taste buds happy.

I found this recipe at Annie’s Eats. Thank you Annie!!

White Chocolate Pumpkin Scones

2 cups flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup white chocolate chips
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
Milk
Cinnamon sugar mixture
Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Cut in the butter till crumbly. Add the chips. Mix the buttermilk, pumpkin, and vanilla and stir in just till mixture is moistened. Pat into a circle, about 3/4″ thick. Cut into triangles. Arrange on greased cookie sheet. Brush with milk and sprinkle tops with cinnamon sugar. Bake at 400 for about 18-20 minutes.
Notes:
-Annie’s recipe called for 1/2 cup butter. I cut it back a bit and I think it worked fabulously!
-I followed her suggestion and doubled the spices, originally the recipe called for just 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and ginger. I’m really glad I did because I thought it was perfectly spiced.
-Sprinkling with cinnamon sugar at the end is an optional step, I thought of that myself. :)
