Pumpkin pie flavor in a flaky, tasty scone with or without chocolate chips! A little indulgent yes, wonderful on occasions, yes again! A few more calories and fat than I normally post, but well worth it my friends, your family will love these!
This recipe is a little adaption from my Clean Eating Strawberry scones. I've eliminated the sucanat sweetener all together so these are simple with stevia. If you don't have stevia then go ahead and use the 1 cup of sucanat like in the strawberry scone recipe.
Mix up the dough, flatten as above, use an oiled pizza slicer to make 8 triangles then separate with a spatula, easy peasy. And they bake in only about 15-20 minutes!
My family LOVED these! I think your will too!
