Pumpkin Ginger Scones With Cinnamon Chips

"This is a delicious flavorful scone that is good at any time of year, not just in the fall and winter. Enjoy for breakfast, with tea or coffee or even for dessert. Makes a good gift, too. Just made them again for a friends birthday (1/09) and mmmmm forgot how I love them so much."

Ready In:
16 scones




  • Combine 1/2 c sugar, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  • Cut 5 Tbsp butter into dry ingredients until crumbly.
  • In separate bowl combine the egg, pumpkin, sour cream and ginger.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Mix in cinnamon chips.
  • Turn out on lightly floured surface and knead 10x. I add extra flour here as the dough is usually a bit moist.
  • Divide dough in half and form each half into a 1/2 inch thick circle.
  • Cut each circle into 8 wedges.
  • Brush wedges with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake on ungreased cookie sheet in preheated 425 degree oven for 10 minutes or until lightly golden on edges.

  1. Really good! I patted out the dough on a parchment covered baking sheet then cut and moved apart to bake. Excellent as is, though next time I might cut the chips back to 3/4 cup and increase the crystallized ginger to 1/4 cup for more ginger flavor. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
  2. Excellent scones. I've used this recipe the last several years, during the holidays, and now family and neighbors ask, "when are you making those scones?"
  3. WOW! This was my first attempt at scone making and they turned out perfectly moist with a delicious combination of flavors. Not overly pumpkin-y, ginger-y or cinnamon-y. I must have made "petite" scones because I got 26 scones from this recipe. I can't wait to take them to work tomorrow!
  4. Made these last weekend when my sister was visiting. I cut down the cinnamon chips to 1/2 cup, and sprinkled the tops of the scones with cinnamon sugar before baking. The dough was easy to work with, and the house smelled heavenly while these were in the oven! So good for breakfast, a snack or dessert. Thanks for posting! -M =)
  5. Lovely moist dense scones - not too heavy, not too sugary. (I didn't have cinnamon chips, but added extra crystallized ginger.) Just warm and flavorful, perfect for a cold winter day! Thank-you!
