I made these a few days ago and was very very pleased with them. I made a couple of changes to suite our needs, I used 50% unbleached white and 50% whole wheat flour white I used 2 tablespoons of Splenda brown blend for the sugar and a third cup of a more heart healthy margarine for the butter. Ok, that's 3 changes but they were still great. The pumpkin in really mild in this recipe that makes beautiful big scones. They also freeze quite well if you don't want to use them all at once.
