Pumpkin Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Scones

My poor scone blog…falling into oblivion like this with half written posts languishing in cyberspace as I struggle to bake scones and care for my now three and a half month old… Scones, you are never far from my mind. My mind just gets overwhelmed by the day to day responsibilities I have now. So…

Maple Bacon Brown Sugar Scones
