This week I made not one, but TWO batches of this yummy seasonal breafast/tea bread.
The recipe came from the Joy of Baking, but I didn't put the raisins and nuts in it. I also didn't have ginger, so I substituted it with nutmeg and it was quite a delicious substitution if I do say so myself!
Now, by themselves they look a little sad. Last year my family made some scones and we made a wonderful discovery. Trader Joe's has a seasonal apple butter.
Cranberry apple butter.
Put some on your pumpkin scone....
And it tastes like a thanksgiving party in your mouth.
Go try it. It's amazing. If you don't have a Trader Joe's near you... I'll lament your loss with you and offer to mail you a jar for a small fee. :)
T.W. just saw my photo of the scones... I have a feeling I will have to make another few batches before we've had our fill of yummy pumpkin-ness.
