I always see scones available at coffee shops and random bakeries. And I have to admit that sometimes I like them (raspberry and cranberry being my favorite), but other times I think they just taste hard and dry. With October coming around, I figured it was only right to make pumpkin scones and I was pleasantly surprised. They are soft and moist. Suddenly, I think I’ve been eating bad scones my whole life! And my world is just opening up. Now I have to start making all different types of scones to experiment! Try this lovely pumpkin recipe.
As I’ve said a million times, October is my favorite month. I owe part of that to Starbucks. I’m not that big into coffee, instead I’m much more of a tea type of gal. But I do treat myself to the occasional frappuccino when I’m feeling wild, or in October a pumpkin spiced latte. However, I recently walked into my Starbucks and asked if they could make me a pumpkin frappuccino. To my delight it was possible and was just as tasty as I had dreamed. I was hooked. I wanted them every day. But the steep price of Starbucks just isn’t practical. So I decided to make my own, and they came out delicious!
For all of June and July, Starbucks became my second home. I was actually at Starbucks so much that I would watch the morning baristas clock out and the afternoon ones clock in. They were very tolerant of me taking up their tables for hours at a time, so I’ve decided that my first recipe back will be my favorite Starbucks dessert. If you go to Starbucks they have these salted caramel squares that are absolutely delicious. On the days I needed to treat myself, this was my go to. However, since this is Starbucks, these aren’t the cheapest two bite treats on the market. So I decided to try to make them myself, and I was successful. Keep reading for the recipe….
