Have you all had enough pumpkin recipes yet! I’m making some kind of pumpkin recipe almost everyday and let me tell you, I can’t get enough!

This scone comes together in a food processor, but you can certainly work with your hands. Incorporate butter into the dry ingredients and then mix in the chocolate chips, pumpkin puree and cream. Mix until the dough starts to clump together. Dump dough on a lightly floured surface, shape into an almost smooth ball, pat into into a 7-inch disc, cut into 8 triangles, place on the prepared baking sheet, brush cream and sprinkle turbinado sugar and bake.

Enjoy hot!! Pop a cold one in a preheated oven or microwave to heat. Though microwave wouldn’t crisp it back up.

Canned pumpkin puree works great! Pay attention to buy  100% pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling.
