Pumpkin Scones

I woke up this morning to gray skies and a chilly house.  All of my siblings were still asleep underneath their warm covers.  I reluctantly crawled out of bed and brushed my teeth.   Mom and Dad were in the kitchen talking and making coffee.   I asked mom if we could make scones, pancakes, or waffles for breakfast.  At first she was not so enthusiastic on grounds that if we baked we’d have more dishes to take care of and the water, once again, was off.  (We have learned not be too surprised to find the water or the electricity off some mornings when we wake up).  With my ready assurance that I would stack all the dirty dishes nicely under the sink, my mom and I decided on trying a new recipe: Whole Wheat Pumpkin Scones.  We had to settle on white flour because we had no whole wheat flour and made a few other changes to the recipe.  After alteration and 30 minutes, we pulled a tray of Mini Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Scones with pecans on top and one candy corn for presentation out of the oven.  They were delicious!   Check out my mom’s blog for this scrumptious recipe.  http://chocolatechips.apt801.com/
