Serves: 12
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit
  2. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and knead together with your hands
  3. Press your dough out on a cutting board to about ¼ inch thickness and form two equal size circles
  4. Cut them like a pizza to the size you want (I got 6 out of each circle)
  5. Put the scones on a parchment lined baking sheet
  6. Sprinkle with a little more pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon (optional)
  7. Put your baking sheet inside a larger baking sheet to prevent the bottoms from cooking too fast
  8. Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until they pass the toothpick test
  9. Remove from oven and set on a cooling rack
  10. Enjoy

  1. We love all things pumpkin and, I’ve made these twice now and we like them very much. Super quick and easy.
    Two of my subs:
    For both batches I used plump organic dried cherries from a local rancher (instead of cranberries, since it’s hard to find unsweetened cranberries), sliced in half to be about the size of dried cranberries.
    For the second batch I used a duck egg and I got better rise than the first batch. But the dough was a little stickier to work with, so if I use duck again I’ll bump up the almond flour a bit during kneading.
    Many thanks for sharing this tasty recipe!

  2. Never made scones before. In fact, I am a lousy baker. However the instructions for this are very user friendly. I am nit sure how they are supposed to come out but they were a bit bitter. I had opened a new can of baking powder and it was clumpy. So, I’m blaming the baking powder. Is there a suggested brand of aluminum free baking powder?

  3. oh thank you! it’s my turn to bring the brunch-y snacks to my women’s bible study this week and I think this may be the winner!

  4. I just put that book on my amazon.com wish list! :)

    And yes, Happy Veteran's Day, George! :D

    (My uncle was a Marine, BTW. He's passed on now, but I have his Parris Island pics–makes me very proud to be his niece.)

  5. Just had to let you know that these are terrific!! Now, my only problem is going to be keeping myself from eating them all at once. LOL!!

  6. SO GOOD! I just spread them on the cookie sheet like cookies since my dough was a bit too sticky and thin. They turned out FANTASTIC!! Will be making them again AND AGAIN!

  7. Pattyg I am so happy to hear that. I have about 4 other scone recipes on my site so you should try them too. My other favorites are my cranberry orange scones.

    Leanne thank you so much and I am so glad you found me too :) I hope you enjoy and stick around for a while :)

  8. I've been going through your site for about a week now and I just cannot get enough?! I'm so happy I found you through pinterest. I'm a new to the scene paleo and am absolutely loving the results of this diet. Thanks for all of your fabulous recipes, including these scones, my gosh they look amazing.

  9. Scones are my absolute non-paleo sin, so I am SO excited about this recipe!And I'm a little obsessed with pumpkin right now, too!
