This recipe is very easy and quick to put together and yields EXCELLENT results. The scones come out tall, fluffy and very tasty. Surprisingly they dont taste strongly of pumpkin, but good. :) THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this winner with us, daisygrl64! Ill surely make this again, maybe adding some cinnamon or vanilla for extra flavour. Made and reviewed for Bevy Tag August 09.
