As an add-in Mini Chocolate chips stirred in to create a bite of pumpkin and chocolate. So delicious and easy to make.
American Scones are Sweet Biscuits
Most American scones often topped with butter, jam, or clotted cream. However, brushing with butter and sprinkled with sugar really makes the biscuit/scone really rich. A dusting of confectioners’ sugar on top or simple glaze makes scones gently sweet. Although, scones can be cut into triangles or cut out like biscuits, my scones in this recipe sport both shapes, pumpkin and triangle. Triangle scones make 8 wedges. Using a silicone mold that looks like a pumpkin make 12-14 2″ scones.
6 Steps to Making Scones

- For triangles: cut 8 x 8″ square in half and half again making 4 squares. Next cut each square into two triangles making 8 pieces. Bake on parchment lined baking sheet, coat with egg wash. Bake at 400 12-14 minutes.
