Well, hello there! Let me just dust the flour off of my hands and come out of the kitchen for a bit. It seems that I have been a baking fool lately. Last week I “volunteered” to bake for Ad’s school. Since we had a soccer game on Saturday morning, I was feeling a little guilty that we couldn’t help at the Pumpkin Patch. So instead, we baked. A lot.
Seven batches of pumpkin scones and a few loafs of pumpkin choco-chip bread later…I was relieved to deposit the goods and be done.
Well, until the end of this week at least. Apparently at some point I signed up to bake for Emma and her school carnival this weekend.
Here are the pretty scones waiting to be sold…
And here is the recipe card that we attached to the bottom.
Supposedly it is the Starbucks pumpkin scone recipe. I don’t think they taste exactly the same, and I couldn’t get the frosting as thick, but they are pretty yummy.
Now, I have a request for all of you.
I have been making muffins for the girls for breakfast. Neither of them really like to eat in the morning, but I have found that they will eat a muffin or two. I’ve been making banana muffins and pumpkin muffins and today I tried blueberry. What I really want is a sneaky recipe that they’ll eat that is good for them as well. I use whole wheat flour and organic sugar – but they still are not super healthy.
So if you have some healthy muffin-type recipes, send them over. If I make them and they pass the test around here – I’ll send some pumpkin scones your way!
