Easy Pumpkin Scones – One of our favorite family breakfasts!

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.

Scones are my favorite baked breakfast good. I think these would be excellent with chocolate chips, as well. I like mixing up the dry goods in a bowl the night before and adding the wet ingredients in the morning just like you do. I usually use buttermilk because I like the flavor and texture it adds. I wrote a post recently explaining how I stretch my buttermilk to make it more frugal, if you are interested. Thanks for the recipe. Pinning it so I can make it soon!
