mashed, cooked pumpkin
self-rising flour, sifted
Even tho this recipe got not so great reviews, I had to try it with a few modifications.... For starts, I couldn't help but wonder if the lack of success of others was due to the lack of baking powder. It did call for "self rising" flour, but if you missed that part, your scones could fall flat. I did at first, but ended up adding 5tsp of baking powder to the mix. I also sprinkled a cinnamon/sugar mix on the top and baked for about 35 minutes.. they came out nice and fluffy, more breadlike than scone like, actually, but tasty. They aren't too sweet, but scones typically aren't anyway... a little pumpkn butter and/or devonshire cream would do these up nicely :). I give it 4 stars with adjustments :)
I would not reccomend this recipe. It was very bland, flat, & chewy. I added banking soda on my 2nd batch, which did help it to rise but didn't help the blandness. I sprinkled on a maple glaze, made with powdered sugar & a touch of maple syrup, which gave it some flavor.
This recipe was bland . . . I would have preferred something with more spice (I even increased the cinnamon and added pumpkin pie spice). I will try the recipe again, adding at least 2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 - 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice. Plus I have been thinking about replacing some of the flour with oatmeal for some interesting texture.
I'm sorry. These came out like hockey pucks.
The Pumpkin Scones turned out perfectly! Living in Arizona, the dry weather requires adding liquid to recipes. However, the dough was smooth and very easily handled. I did not need to add any spices either. Excellent!
My husband loved these. He kept eating them, and telling me how good they were. I was a little worried about the recipe after reading the reviews but I had no problems with it. I did have to sub the self-rising flour since I never buy the stuff. I mixed 3 1/2 c All purpose flour, 2T Baking powder and 2t salt, then went ahead with the recipe. They rose very well for me. Also just used a 15oz can of pumpkin. Instead of cutting into rounds, because I'm lazy, I placed the dough on a sheet of parchment paper, pressed it out into a rectangle and then used an oiled pizza cutter to cut it into squares and then baked it. Sprinkled the tops with a little sugar before baking. They came out perfect. I personally wanted a little more spice to them but when I mentioned that to hubby he glared at me. Served this with Cinnamon Honey Butter (AR). Will make these again. Thanks for the recipe!
Very chewy. They didn't seem to want to cook properly and turned out to be very heavy with little flavour. Nothing like the pumpkin scones I eat at our local bakery (cobbs) wish I had their recipe!
I wasn't too crazy about these. I added Pumpkin Pie spice and extra cinnamon and they were still bland. I did use real mashed pumpkin, so it had a nice natural sort-of flavor. The dough was also gooy and not good for rolling out. But, all said and done, my hubby liked them!
