I’ve been trying to do better about preparing breakfasts we all like. So when I saw a pumpkin scone recipe online, I thought yeah, I can make that.
It’s super easy and I had all the ingredients already.
My son is my helper. He loves to be in the kitchen!
I kneaded it and sliced the dough into triangles and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.
Getting the wedges onto the baking sheet was a little tricky.
The cinnamon sugar drizzle was delectable.
The kids loved these! Middle sister was in heaven. She loves pumpkin anything.
He wasn’t sure at first, but he liked it after he tried it!
She loved it!
Even my eldest enjoyed a scone when she returned from her piano lesson.
Definitely a favorite that’s going in our baking repertoire. And I think the kids can make them on their own next time!
And I got to spend some one on one time with my son. He loved it. And I realize that we need to do that more. I need to bake more and introduce new flavors and foods. It’s easy for me to just let the kids get cereal in the mornings, but they do so much better with a warm breakfast – even something simple like oatmeal, grits, or bread.
