Harvest Pumpkin Scones

We are halfway over October and this is the FIRST time I have done any fall baking. This month has been a whirlwind and I finally have some down time.

These pumpkins scones are soft, fluffy, and not to sweet. Perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack! I made double batch because I knew these wouldn’t last long.

These scones just scream everything fall! I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
