These were very good. Wonderful flavor but they were a little tougher than I like in a scone. I may have had something to do with that, but I think they ended up having just a bit to much liquid in the recipe.

Overall, these were pretty good. Mine took a long time to cook and ended up pretty dense, but definitely still taste good.

I only made the scone and they turned out pretty tasty but I had a couple problems and am not sure why. The dough wasn't moist at all and I added more milk. Then I ended up doubling the cook time. I think I had more pumpkin leftover than the 1/2 cup so maybe that was part of the cooking time problem. All in all though they still turned out tasty.
