Savory Kale and Pumpkin Scones

The next time you have a pot of homemade soup simmering on the stove take the extra time and whip up a batch of these savory scones, don’t they just scream fall?
They’re  crunchy, cheesy, and filled with all things good, like pumpkin, kale and of course… a little bit of butter!
Make sure you buy a sweet pumpkin that’s for cooking and baking, or better yet, just use a butternut squash, it’s a lot easier to peel and cut, it tastes good, and you’ll still be getting that pretty orange color.
You can even make them ahead of time, stick them in the freezer and warm up as needed.
I used a wonderful aged cheddar in mine and added kale that is still growing strong in my garden.
These yummy scones came from, ” The Book of Kale” by Sharon Hanna, and the recipe has been reprinted here.
I followed her recipe exactly but also added in about 1/3 cup of grated parmesan cheese, why not?
Perfect with a steamy hot bowl of soup!

    My hubs absolutely hates kale, so what else could I use in it’s place? Mustard greens, spinach? They are so lovely and I know he’d eat them if I could substitute another green. Maybe even chopped broccoli?

  7. I love the colors here and must make these to eat with some warm fall soup.

  8. These scones look so colorful and delicious! What a great fall recipe! Hope to try them soon.
