Pumpkin Scones:

Furthermore, I would like to give some of my suggestions for a perfect pumpkin scones. Firstly, These pumpkin scones are baked at a higher than normal oven temperature which gives them a crisp outside crust. Secondly, Buttermilk also gives a thick creamy texture with a rich and tangy buttery taste. However, you can make your own buttermilk, just by adding 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to 1/2 cup of milk and let it stand at room temperature for about 10 minutes before using. While adding buttermilk, start with 1/3 cup (80ml) and mix the dough. And then, if needed, add more buttermilk.

Finally, to make your lives easier instead of making pumpkin puree we can buy a canned pumpkin puree. Just make sure that you don’t buy the pumpkin puree which already has the spices added to it.

How to make homemade pumpkin puree :

If you want to make your own pumpkin puree, then buy a smaller pumpkin variety. Then first cut it in half lengthwise, remove all the seeds and stringy fibers, and then place cut-side down on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 180 degrees C for about 45 minutes to 75 minutes depending on size or until easily pierced with a knife. Scoop out the pulp and place them in a blender and blend it until a smooth paste. Then strain the puree through a cheesecloth-lined strainer and then cool the puree before using.
