They say that the way to win a man’s heart is to go through his stomach…. In my house, heart winning comes from the oven and straight to the heart.
I. love. baking. I am one of those gals that at the first hint of cool weather the flour starts to fly. The smell of cookies, scones, breads and cakes will be found wafting through the house as the temperature outside starts to fall.
Today I was inspired to weave an essential fall flavor into my scones-of- amazingness. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family did….
2 cups Flour
3 Tbs Sugar
1 Tbs Baking Powder
5 Tbs cold Butter, cut into pieces
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp ginger
1/2 cup Pumpkin Pie Filling
1 cup Heavy Cream
Glaze: 1/2 powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice 1 Tbs water
Mix first 8 ingredients together in your food processor. Pulse 15 times.
Turn into a large bowl and set aside.
Mix the pumpkin filling and heavy cream together and add to dry ingredients.
Turn mixture onto floured surface and press into a 9 inch circle.
Cut into 8 wedges, and bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.
Frost with the glaze while hot.
Beat back family members to keep them from eating them all while they are still too hot!
