Pumpkin and Eggnog Scones

Pumpkin and eggnog are two complementary flavors and they pair well in these Pumpkin and Eggnog Scones that are lovely in autumn and around the Christmas period. The scones are tasty served warm with clotted cream or English double cream, and fig jam, in particular, though any jam of choice can, of course, be used. They are also delicious served simply with a good slather of butter.

Note, from the photo below how I am taking a neutral stance on the Cornish method and the Devon method of applying the cream and jam to the scones! I enjoy scones via either method.
