pumpkin and carrot sconesPUMPKIN AND CARROT SCONES

These scones were meant for autumn. They are light and moist and yes, they do taste a bit like pumpkin pie. Our kids thought they were weird but they liked them. The turbinado sugar on top creates a nice, buttery crunch. Give these scones a try.
Looking for an out-of-the-ordinary scone recipe? These are an attractive, deep orange color and they have a taste that will remind you of pumpkin pie. And there is a secret ingredient—grated carrots. The carrots give them a bit of chewiness. The bonus? These great tasting scones are healthier with vitamin A-loaded pumpkin and carrots and yogurt.

Pumpkin and Carrot Scone Recipe

• 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
• 1/3 cup brown sugar
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
• 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
• 1/2 cup shredded carrots

• 6 tablespoons cold butter

• 1 cup pumpkin puree
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 1/4 cup vanilla or plan yogurt (fat reduced or regular but not fat free)
• 1 large egg

• 2 tablespoons butter, melted
• turbinado sugar

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Grease a large baking sheet or cover it with parchment paper.

1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Stir in the grated carrots.

2. Use a pastry knife to cut the butter into the dry ingredients and continue cutting until the mixture is coarse and uniform.

3. In another bowl, stir together the pumpkin, vanilla extract, yogurt, and egg. Form a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the liquid mixture. Stir to combine then remove to a floured counter and knead until uniform. (Do not over-knead. Too much kneading will develop the gluten in the flour and make the scones tough.)

4. Divide the dough into two pieces and press each into 3/4 inch thick circles. Cut each circle into wedges or use a biscuit cutter to cut them into circles. Place the scones on the prepared baking sheet. Melt the 2 tablespoons of butter and brush on the scone wedges. Sprinkle them with the turbinado sugar to cover.

5. Let bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned. Remove to a rack to cool.

Baker’s note: You can purchase cinnamon, turbinado sugar, and a biscuit cutter from The Prepared Pantry.
