Nutrition for Runners: Pumpkin Scones

Tonight’s recipe is a good one for breakfast. It is also one that does not take long to prepare.

To make this recipe you will need the following:

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 tsp of ginger
  • 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of puréed pumpkin (to make your own roast pumpkin at 350 until soft and scrapes off the skin, then purée in a blender)
  • 1 tsp of vanilla

Mix all of the dry ingredients until crumbly. Add milk, pumpkin and vanilla.

Knead a few times and add flour so you can put the dough in 2-3 inch circle.  Divide into 6 pieces.

Place the pieces on a baking sheet and bake at 400 for 20-30 minutes.
