These easy pumpkin scones are one of our very favorite family breakfasts. They are on my weekly menu plan quite often. I love them because I can prep the dry ingredients ahead of time for the freezer, and then just add butter, mix-ins, and milk for a quick homemade breakfast.

We honestly haven’t had scones in quite some time, in part because it’s been so hot that I haven’t been doing hardly any baking. My son asked me this week to please make him some scones, so this morning I was happy to oblige with these.
Easy Pumpkin Scones – One of our favorite family breakfasts!
First, mix up dry ingredients and add butter. Cut with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles little peas.
Add in the pumpkin and the milk and fold until combined.
Turn the dough out onto a baking stone and pat into a circle – it should be about 3/4 inch think.
Enjoy! Do you like scones? What’s your favorite type?
I like to add a couple TBS course raw sugar at this point. It just gives the scones a nice crunch! And boy do my kids yell at me if I forget to add the sugar on the top.
Use a serrated knife to cut the scones into eight, pie shaped pieces.
Separate the scone pieces so they don’t touch and bake at 375 for 22-25 minutes. I usually bake mine longer because I like them crunchy. 🙂
