Ingredients

4 c
all purpose flour
3 Tbsp
sugar
4 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
cream of tartar
3/4 c
cold butter (no substitutions)
1 large
egg, separated
1 1/2 c
pumpkin spice non-dairy liquid creamer
1/2 c
chopped pecans

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cream of tartar; cut in cold butter until crumbly.
3
In a separate bowl, whisk egg yolk and creamer; add to dry ingredients just until moistened. Stir in pecans.
4
Turn dough onto floured surface and knead 10 times. Don't overmix or dough will be tough.
5
Pat into a large circle leaving dough 1 1/2- 2 inches thick. Cut into 8 wedges. Separate and place on prepared sheet. (If desired, divide dough into2 portions. Pat each portion into 7 inch circles. Cut each portion into 8 wedges. This will make for smaller thinner scones but more quantity.)

7
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden.
