Pumpkin Spice Chips

October 22, 2012

I am ALWAYS on the hunt for a great fall recipe. In fact, I’d even say that fall is my all-time-favorite time to bake. Something about the squash, pumpkin, spice cakes just pull me in! While browsing some of my favorite sites I saw this recipe for Pumpkin Pie Spice Chips. It grabbed my attention… but what in the world would I use those things for? I pinned it, and pushed it to the back of my mind.

About a week ago I decided I was in the mood for a really good, fall flavored, scone. But I wanted them easy. So I jumped online and searched around. For some reason the pin of Pumpkin Pie Spice Chips kept popping up, so I gave in and wrote down the recipe!

Pumpkin Spice Chips
(Recipe base from Cupcake Project)

2/3 C. sugar
1 T. ground cinnamon
1 T. ground nutmeg
1T. ground ginger
3/4 t. ground allspice
2 T. salted butter, room temperature
2 T. honey
1/4 t. vanilla extract

– Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, and preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

– Mix all of the ingredients in a medium sized bowl until combined. Pour onto your prepared baking tray. Smash down with your hand the back of a wooden spoon. You want it about 1/4 inch thick. Bake for 40 minutes, or until it’s nice and bubbly.

– Allow your concoction to cool completely, and then break into chips.

    Wow…using these in scones sounds fabulous! I am getting ready to make pumpkin-banana bread, but it would be nice to use a handful of these in my banana bread recipe rather than roasting a pumpkin.

    These sound so good! Hmm, I would probably use them in cookies, biscotti maybe. Another recipe to add to my mile long list 🙂
