Betty's Simple Substitution
If you don't have pumpkin pie spice on hand, you can make your own by mixing 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves. Make wedge-shaped scones by patting dough into a circle and cutting into wedges before baking.
