Sharing.4 & Pumpkin Scones

Oh my gosh! I love my husband but he had a Starbucks Pumpkin Scone a few weeks ago and I think he has woken up every morning since talking about going to get one! Every morning! :)

So this weekend I made him 16 of them and told him not to speak of them again for at least a few months :)
I'll admit I like them too but not the the obsessive amount this man does!
But on Saturday afternoon I made some and now we have yummy breakfast for this week. I love oatmeal but I do need a change sometimes.

Pumpkin Scones:

4 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
3 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups pumpkin puree
1/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F


2 cups powdered sugar
3 tbs. milk
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice!!!

1   in a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, powder, spices, soda and salt
2   grate in or cut in the butter
3   in another small bowl mix together the eggs, puree and milk
4   add wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated
5   place dough on a floured surface and knead 10-15 times
6   divide dough in half and pat down each into a circle about 8" in diameter and then cut into
     8 triangles from each half
7   place them on a cookie sheet and bake them until they are golden brown on top, about 15-20 minutes
(it was a little hard to decide when to take them out of the oven but when the tops actual begin to become golden brown then take them out. If you take them out before that they will be not all the way cooked on the inside)

8   once they are cooled mix the glaze ingredients together and drizzle or heap on top of the scones.
They are good for about a week after you make them.

On a note about what has been on our minds...

We've been thinking a lot about prayer and how important it is to be praying for our friends and people in our lives. I think we can tend to be assuming people so during our runs and car rides we've been talking about what it would look like if we were keeping each other more acountable in how we judge or assume about people, whether we know them or not. We have a partner in each other so we want to work on building each other into a person that loves others before being assuming.

And also people in our small group and friends have been asking us to pray for them. We mean well and sometimes remember to throughout the day but now we're talking about how much more important it is than we'd allowed it to be at first. We want to write their requests down and make a point of remembering to pray for them at night and then we think that we will begin to remember more to pray for them during the day as well.


  1. yummmmm I may need to make these :) I LOVE pumpkin!

  2. Thanks for the advice!! Those recipes look delicious, I am going to have to try them! Especially the bread and soup. Mmm :)

    I've actually never tried hummus! I have always wanted to, though. The problem is that I live in an extremely small town and I am pretty sure my grocery store doesn't carry hummus. Or anything else healthy or organic for that matter!

  3. I tried these... with the espresso you sent... Abso-freaking-lutely amazing! Although mine didn't look as good as yours.

  4. That makes me SOOO happy you have no idea! they are truly addicting! I'm drinking some of the espresso right now :)
