Pumpkin Spice Scones

My grandmother’s scone recipe is to die for.  We often ask for it when she comes to visit.  I was craving them this morning, but I also wanted to have some zing.  Something out of the ordinary. Something besides jam and butter.  I had some pumpkin on hand, so I adapted her recipe and am thrilled with the result!
