ABOUT Pumpkin Scones RECIPE

This is an amazing recipe of Scones. Scones are like soft biscuits that are either sweet or savory and make a great breakfast option. Serve them with soft cream cheese or jams or any dipping sauce. Adding whole wheat is personal choice. These are rather dense, so going whole Wheat totally is not recommended.
