Pumpkin Scones

What better way to enjoy a cool, crisp Fall morning that with scones fresh from the oven. Why, we’re drooling just writing this blog!

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar 
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter cold or frozen cut into pieces
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Coarse sugar for sprinkling

To make:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a food processor, combine flour, sugars, baking powder, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and salt. Pulse until ingredients are well combined. Sprinkle butter pieces over the top of the flour mixture and pulse until mixture becomes fine crumbs.

In a large measuring cup, whisk together heavy cream, pumpkin puree, and vanilla extract until smooth. Pour pumpkin/cream mixture over flour/butter mixture in food processor and pulse until mixture begins to clump.

Carefully turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Fold the dough in half over itself and use your hands to gently flatten layers together. Rotate the dough and fold in half again, repeating this step 5 times (don’t overwork the dough). Form into a disk about 6 inches wide.

Using a large knife, cut dough into 8 wedges pressing knife straight down (don’t saw). Place scones 2 inches apart on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Brush each scone with heavy cream and sprinkle with coarse sugar.

Transfer to oven and bake for 17 minutes. Enjoy!

You know you’re in trouble with a plant right off the bat when you don’t know what to call it! Do you pronounce it Clem-a-tis or Clem-a-tis? Whatever…we all know which plant we’re talking about. Here’s one time tested piece of advice: Keep their heads in the sun and their feet in the shade.

The truth is that clematis like their roots cool and moist, but they grow best in a sunny location. You can accomplish that a number of ways. Place mulch at the base of the plant or plant other perennials that don’t compete (ex. iris aren’t deep rooted). Decorative rocks also help shade the soil.

There are lots of cool varieties in many different colors these days. Heck ,they are even bush cultivars now! No old-fashioned garden is complete without them.
