Since we're on such a strict diet leading up to vacation (in a week!), the only way to bake is to take stuff to work. And since my co-workers love all things pumpkin - and I want fall to start already - I decided to try these Maple Pumpkin Scones, which I've been eyeing for a while.
I didn't substitute anything - or add anything - even though I was tempted to add more spices (nutmeg!). As I was mixing all the ingredients, I realized there was no sugar. What?! So I immediately started to worry.
When the scones came out of the oven, I was perplexed. They looked pumpkin. They were dark, unlike the recipe's picture. They tasted alright, but not great. Not really sweet. I was going to do the Greek/yogurt and syrup glaze but instead opted for a powdered sugar/orange juice concoction in the hope of adding a bit of sweetness. It didn't do too much.
I like the idea of these scones but I won't be making them again.
