I came up with this recipe because I love scones and wanted to incorporate their texture and delicate taste into a cookie. So far, I have baked these 3 times and each attempt was successful. If you like scones and tea, this is a nice change. Because of the pumpkin in the recipe, I used Halloween cookie cutters, but any shape will do. Twice I used "fresh" frozen pumkin, thawed, but canned also worked well. The yield I give is using a 2 to 21/2 inch cutter.
