Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones

Inspired by my recently roasted and pureed pumpkin and encouraged by Joanna's variation on the recipe, I made these pumpkin chocolate chip scones this morning. Mmmm! Such a yummy fall flavour on a damp day.

1 1/2 C flour
1/4 C sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tblsp butter, softened
1/3 C pureed pumpkin
1/3 C buttermilk
1/2 C chocolate chips

Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in pumpkin, buttermilk, butter, and chocolate chips. If necessary, knead with your hands to incorporate all the flour. Form dough into a ball, and flatten into a 1/2 inch thick disk on baking sheet. Sprinkle with sugar and cut into 8 segments. Separate segments, and cut each into 2 smaller triangles (so my toddlers can eat them in one sitting). Bake at 425` for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

These had a more biscuit-like texture than my regular glazed pumpkin scones, but we really enjoyed them. And not having to cut in cold butter is always a nice treat...I don't know why that task always bothers me!
