Easy Pumpkin Scones


Easy Pumpkin Scones

Mix up a batch of pumpkin scones for brunch or a quick snack. These are the perfect fall treat and are great for holidays like Halloween or Thanksgiving.


  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened slightly
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1 cup cooked pumpkin, mashed
  • 2 2/3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ground ginger
  • 1/3 cup milk (or less)


  1. Sift together the dry ingredients.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat butter and sugar together with an electric mixer. Add in the egg and corn syrup. (Mix the rest with a spoon so it won't be over mixed.)
  3. Stir in the pumpkin, and half of the sifted dry ingredients. Add the rest of the dry ingredients with just enough of the milk to make a soft dough. If it is too sticky to work, add a sprinkle (or two) of flour.
  4. Knead only a little, gently until you can pat it out into a big flat rectangle about 2 cm thick (just under an inch). Cut into 12 pieces with a floured knife. Transfer to a lightly greased oven tray and bake at 450 degrees F  for 18 minutes.
