Hi again and hope you are ready for some Fall deliciousness coming your way!
Pumpkin spice season has officially begun and I’m over here dreaming of cooler weather down in Texas! It may still be in the upper 80’s but I finally cracked open the canned pumpkin puree and had to bake! When you think of Fall, you automatically think of cozy sweaters, warm spices and pumpkin of course!
I don’t know why I’ve always loved Fall, since I’ve only experienced it maybe twice in my life, growing up in Florida doesn’t help with seeing the change of seasons! But the first time I visited Boston, MA it was late October and SO beautiful with all the trees changing colors, since then I have always dreamt of living somewhere with cooler weather!
So today, to kick off the pumpkin obsession of mine, we’re starting with scones. These are moist and have the perfect amount of spice in them. Of course, these are fantastic with coffee or tea in the morning, but it’s 11 at night and I’m still nibbling on them! The Golden Barrel Supreme Baking Molasses gives it a rich, deep flavor and also adds a bit of sweetness to the scone, just enough that it keeps you wondering what the ingredients are!
Scones on the other hand, are so versatile. Baked with jams inside, cheese, you name it, and it will probably come out awesome. For these particular scones, I made a delicious molasses glaze to go on top, with a hint of maple syrup for that warm gooey sensation when you think of maple syrup… Mmmm….
I hope you enjoy this Pumpkin Scones with Molasses Glaze recipe and get to spice it up a bit! I have added quite a bit of cinnamon because I don’t think you can ever really have enough, personal opinion.
