Pumpkin Spice Chips

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!

    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.
