Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Scones

Well fall is upon us here in Colorado.  The air just smelled of it!  (did I say that right?)  I was going to post a soup today but my pictures just could not convey how delicious it was so I made these copycat Starbucks pumpkin scones instead.  Not only are they super yummy but they are super easy to whip up and have some wonderful aromas floating around in your house.  I will have to work on my soup picture taking abilities some more.

I have a little confession to make.  Don’t judge me to harshly but………..I have never ever in my life been to Starbucks.  (GASP)  There I said it and I know you are probably thinking that girl has got to be living in a cave or something.  Who has never been to a Starbucks— no one but me.  I just don’t like coffee (GASP!!)  I have never cared for the taste of coffee but I love the smell of coffee brewing.  The only time coffee is being made at my house is for company or a chocolate cake recipe.  Here comes the next shocker I didn’t know Starbucks had other things there besides coffee.  (Oh my gosh I have got to get out more often)  Well there you have it my sad confession.
