Is there really anything better than Chocolate Chips and Pumpkin? Okay maybe guacamole. But it’s fall – and I’m all about baking at the moment. I brought home the most enormous bags of flour and sugar the other day and baking has pretty much taken over my life. You see it rained for the first time in LA in who knows how long, and I got really excited about fall, and then threw on all my winter clothes, boots and scarfs and decided to bake. And then a few hours later it was sunny again. And I felt like fall was gone. Boo. So I’m just pretending that it’s Fall and the leaves are changing in LA and it’s slightly overcast rather than it being sunny. (I’m weird – and I’m totally cool with it!) So to say I’ve been on a bit of a baking rampage is a slight understatement. But not to worry – I’ve been sending it all to work with my boyfriend so he can devour it with his fellow co-workers.
These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip studded Scones are just kinda life changing. I’ve always been a fan of scones. And I’ve been seeing pumpkin everything everywhere recently. Pumpkin lattes. Pumpkin Cookies. Pumpkin muffins. Pumpkin Cheesecake. Pumpkin cocktails. Okay maybe not the cocktails… but still. It’s only right to make these pumpkin scones and share them with your family or friends on a weekend when it’s a little chilly outside and you just want to cuddle up inside with one of these scones and perhaps a cup of coffee or tea! (In my case a non caffeinated tea – because I go crazy with caffeine. Like literally. I can’t sit still. And I get really silly. And sing a whole lot.) So whip up a batch of these and share them with someone you love. Or keep them for yourself. I won’t judge!
