Vegan Pumpkin Pear Scones
1/2 cup sugar
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 tsp ginger powder
1/2 cup vegan margarine
2 cups pureed pumpkin
1 cup diced pear (preferably Bosc)
In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and ginger). Cut in vegan margarine, adding a bit at a time until mixed. Add pumpkin and pear and combine well.
On a lightly floured surface, knead dough a few times, pushing it into a large circle, a few inches thick.
Cut into 12 or so triangular pieces. Imagine you are cutting a pizza so that you get even, triangular slices.
Bake at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until done.
