Even tho this recipe got not so great reviews, I had to try it with a few modifications.... For starts, I couldn't help but wonder if the lack of success of others was due to the lack of baking powder. It did call for "self rising" flour, but if you missed that part, your scones could fall flat. I did at first, but ended up adding 5tsp of baking powder to the mix. I also sprinkled a cinnamon/sugar mix on the top and baked for about 35 minutes.. they came out nice and fluffy, more breadlike than scone like, actually, but tasty. They aren't too sweet, but scones typically aren't anyway... a little pumpkn butter and/or devonshire cream would do these up nicely :). I give it 4 stars with adjustments :) Read More

I would not reccomend this recipe. It was very bland flat & chewy. I added banking soda on my 2nd batch which did help it to rise but didn't help the blandness. I sprinkled on a maple glaze made with powdered sugar & a touch of maple syrup which gave it some flavor. Read More

This recipe was bland... I would have preferred something with more spice (I even increased the cinnamon and added pumpkin pie spice). I will try the recipe again adding at least 2 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 - 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice. Plus I have been thinking about replacing some of the flour with oatmeal for some interesting texture. Read More

My husband loved these. He kept eating them and telling me how good they were. I was a little worried about the recipe after reading the reviews but I had no problems with it. I did have to sub the self-rising flour since I never buy the stuff. I mixed 3 1/2 c All purpose flour 2T Baking powder and 2t salt then went ahead with the recipe. They rose very well for me. Also just used a 15oz can of pumpkin. Instead of cutting into rounds because I'm lazy I placed the dough on a sheet of parchment paper pressed it out into a rectangle and then used an oiled pizza cutter to cut it into squares and then baked it. Sprinkled the tops with a little sugar before baking. They came out perfect. I personally wanted a little more spice to them but when I mentioned that to hubby he glared at me. Served this with Cinnamon Honey Butter (AR). Will make these again. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

The Pumpkin Scones turned out perfectly! Living in Arizona the dry weather requires adding liquid to recipes. However the dough was smooth and very easily handled. I did not need to add any spices either. Excellent! AZSmurf Read More

Very chewy. They didn't seem to want to cook properly and turned out to be very heavy with little flavour. Nothing like the pumpkin scones I eat at our local bakery (cobbs) wish I had their recipe! Read More

I would not recommend this recipe. The flavor was bland and the texture was too chewy to be a scone. And I needed to add alot of extra flour because the pumpkin made this recipe too moist to knead out. Try one of the Apple Scone recipes instead. Read More
