How To Make cast iron pumpkin scones

  • 1
    Preheat the oven and cast-iron cornbread pan or 10” Dutch Oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, mix together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt and allspice.
  • 2
    Cut butter into chunks. Add to flour mixture, mix until it looks crumbly or grainy.
  • 3
    In another bowl, stir together egg, pumpkin and milk. When well mixed, add to flour and other dry stock. Stir gently around the bowl, until the dough is uniformly mixed & lumpy. Don’t mix too much. The more you mix, the tougher the scone.
  • 4
    Put the scone dough in the lightly oiled cast iron pan/Dutch oven in small rounds. Mix sugar and pumpkin pie spice together and sprinkle liberally over the top of each scone. Place back into oven and bake 18 to 22 minutes, or until the scones are slightly browned and firm in their centers. Remove from the heat and let cool for 10 min before removing and enjoy.
