Fall, glorious fall!
Yes, we finally got a taste of fall here in north Texas. Cool mornings and absolutely delightful afternoons were on tap for us this past weekend. So when I woke up Saturday morning, I was in the mood for something fallish for breakfast. Something that screamed autumnal joy, even if it sent me into a carb coma.
Then I remembered I had this in my pantry.
Ah, yes. Pumpkin spice scones were just the ticket.
I've blogged about the Sticky Fingers brand scone mix before. So easy and very, very tasty.
Just dump the mix into a bowl.
Add 3/4 cup of water and stir with a fork.
From here, you can pat the mixture into a 10-inch circle for wedge-style scones or drop them by over-sized tablespoons onto a baking sheet.
I opted for the latter.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 15 or so minutes and you have almost instant, pumpkin gratification.
Yep, these guys were tasty, all right. Packed with all the flavors we expect from pumpkin treats.
Best of all, I managed to stop at two of these babies. Then, I put the rest into a zip-top back, removed all the air and stuck them in the freezer for another cool autumn morn when nothing else will do.
And this is just a gratuitous pic of Maddie the Wonder Dog standing atop her perch. From here, she can see all points of the yard to make sure everything is in order. However, what she really wants is for someone to throw her ball. :)
Happy Tuesday, everyone.
