This scone recipe screams autumn. It's a great way to make use of just a little bit of leftover kabocha squash (or pumpkin). —kikukat

What You'll Need
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup pureed kabocha squash (or any winter squash or pumpkin)
  • 1 egg

  2. In a medium bowl, combine sour cream, kabocha puree, and egg. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse 6 tbsp sugar and candied ginger together until ginger is finely chopped. Add flour.
