Wonderful Pumpkin Scones with a little bite of ginger! Drizzled with a creamy icing, these scones are sure to make your cool mornings a little brighter!
Can you believe it’s already approaching the end of October, which means Halloween! Then Thanksgiving..like what the fudge…my 10 month old started walking the last couple of days..where on earth is the time going? I know I probably say that way to much, but seriously, will it ever slow down? I read something really great recently..I’ve talked here about how much of an adjustment it’s been since we moved here, taking care of two babies without anyone else around for 12-16 hours a day when it’s something I’m not used to, has kind of taken it’s toll. It gets a bit stressful and frustrating sometimes..
Well someone said “The days are long, and the years are short” and I feel like truer words have never been spoken. The last year went by so fast, it’s such a blur. I try to ‘stop and smell the roses’ as they say, appreciate the moment, smile and be grateful for all that I have and that I’m afforded the opportunity to be home with my kids, especially on days I’m ready to look into daycare, because I know that I would regret it. I feel so appreciative that I’m the one that get’s to spend the days with my kids and experience every milestone…like when my son took his first steps on Friday..I almost cried. As hard as some days are, I really am trying to savor every single moment.
Shall we talk scones now? Ginger Pumpkin Scones to be precise. They’re exactly how scones should be. These babies are the perfect accompaniment to your morning coffee, especially on days that are extra brisk! The bite from the ginger is a fantastic combination to the pumpkin. They are the perfect fall breakfast.
I made these as one big round, cut into eight wedges. The scones rose high! That is awesome, but it also made portions that were just a tad big to what I prefer for breakfast! Next time, I would roll the dough into two rounds, and cut each circle into six wedges, giving you 12 normal size portions. Other than that, the flavors are spot on and I will definitely be making these again!
