One of my favorite things about fall is pumpkin.  I like pumpkin best in baked goods not just because of the flavor but also because it makes them so moist like in this bread and these cupcakes.Begin your mornings this fall with these scrumptious glazed cinnamon chip Pumpkin Scones.

Remember my blueberry scones from back in January?  Well, I made a pumpkin version and it is so so good.  It took a lot of self control from me, my husband, and two-year-old daughter to not stuff our mouths with these before I could snap some photos.  My husband remarked that these scones are his favorite dessert right now.  I definitely agree… but I’m going to count it as breakfast so I can eat it first thing when I wake up. ha!Begin your mornings this fall with these scrumptious glazed cinnamon chip Pumpkin Scones.

The cinnamon chips in these scones are like little gems of goodness. Have you every tried them?  So yum!  I can’t wait to use them more in my baking this fall!Begin your mornings this fall with these scrumptious glazed cinnamon chip Pumpkin Scones.

These are perfectly delish without the glaze but who can say no to more sugar?!

Gosh just writing this post and staring at these photos makes me want to go eat one of these but I promised my husband he could have the last one since I ate most of them.  It is taking all of me to have self-control right now. Gosh, just the smell of them is irresistible.  Seriously, you must make these!  Enjoy.Begin your mornings this fall with these scrumptious glazed cinnamon chip Pumpkin Scones.

    Just made these! Had to improvise a bit- sub buttermilk for the milk so had to adjust b. Powder and b. Soda. Also couldn’t find cinnamon chips at the store so had to make my own.

    Anyways, these were delicious!! So light and scrumptious!
