Pumpkin Chocolate Chip and Pecan Scones

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip and Pecan Scones

It feels like fall outside, leaves are falling, and the air is getting chilly. But the colors are beautiful, I love looking out the window and seeing the leaves on the grass, yes it’s a bit messy, but beautiful colors, nonetheless.

And when fall is here, the number one thing that comes to my mind are pumpkins. Especially now the stores are full of them, and Halloween is approaching, so it’s a fun time of the year.

With that in mind, I came across this lovely recipe for pumpkin scones, which I thought were just gorgeous and I had to try them myself. I modified the recipe a bit, just because I like to change things up, so one thing I had to add was pecans. I love pecans, and I thought it gave these scones a nice crunch. These pumpkin scones turned out delicious and I’ve been having one for breakfast every day and they smell just heavenly.
