Pumpkin Scones

Fall is quickly approaching and pumpkin flavours are in the air. Pumpkin spiced lattes are at starbucks, and...that's pretty much it right now, but SOON pumpkins will be everywhere. I haven't had much experience with pumpkin. I've eaten pumpkin pie maybe twice, never had a pumpkin spiced latte, and never had a pumpkin scone. I love scones and am impartial to pumpkin (due to lack of experience) so what could go wrong. After reading an Oh She Glows post on her Savoury Pumpkin Scones in a Pumpkin Spiced Glaze, Jenna the housemate and I put it at the top of the baking list. The next day they were in the making.

I'm not even going to write the recipe here since it is all in the link above. It isn't a very sweet scone as you can tell from the title, "Savoury." We wanted it on the sweet side so we added the 2 tbsp of sugar (raw sugar) as Angela recommends. The original recipe is vegan, however we used an actual egg so ours was a vegetarian variety. All I can say is these did not last long in this house. Today we were trying to decide how many hours exactly they were in existence for. Not much more than 24 hours that's for sure.

The same night these scones were made, our other housemate Megan went all culinary on us and made a fantastic meal for herself and her boyfriend. I would like to showcase the strawberry bruschetta as it is beautiful and also delicious. One day I will get the recipe from her.

That is what is great about having housemates like the girls I am living with. We feed off of each other in the kitchen and are constantly getting ideas from each other. How lucky am I!

Like I mentioned in my first public post I am always open to suggestions and tips about the blog. What would YOU like the see? As brilliantly recommended by my wonderful cousin Diana I will now label posts as vegetarian (more often then not), vegan, or vegan option (easily made vegan or non-vegan). This makes it easy to search for the posts that meet your dietary requirements!
