Remember that huge pumpkin I pureed? Well, I finally used the last of it. Don’t get me wrong, I still love pumpkin, but I am done with it until next fall.
I wanted to challenge myself to try something new with my final batch of pumpkin. I settled on scones.
Making scones can be a little intimidating the first time. I had trouble getting the dough to the right consistency, with out over working it and building up the gluten.
Gluten: aka the protein that gives dough it’s cohesiveness.
My scones ended up a little tough and dry the next day. But I overworked my dough a bit.
As long as you handle your dough properly your scones will turn out perfectly! But, if they do happen to turn out a bit dry, toasting and butter brings them back to life.
