Griffon Scones

— Chef's Note —

"Baking powder makes baked goods and friendships fluffy and delicious!" - Pinkie Pie

This recipe is for the "good" griffon scones (that Pinkie Pie makes). To make the "bad" griffon scones (Grampa Gruff's original secret recipe), leave out the baking powder, make the shape of the scones irregular, and poke in some crunchy chocolate sticks or pocky after baking.

Pumpkin spice kisses can be hard to find (I had to order mine online). Another option is to use almonds - just dip half of each almond in the dark chocolate sauce, and let cool or refrigerate.

I made my scones pumpkin-flavored to match the candy acorns, but plain or spiced scones would also work. You should be able to sub out the pumpkin for about 3/4 cup milk and 1/2 cup butter for plain scones.

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (232 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar.
  3. Beat in egg, then pumpkin puree.
  4. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl.
  5. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture until just combined.
  6. Turn onto floured board, and cut into rounds. (Batter will be sticky, so you will probably need to flour your hands as well.)

How to Make Candy Acorns

— Instructions —

  1. Pour dark chocolate chips in a small bowl.
  2. Microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring each time, until the chips have melted into sauce. (Be careful not to over-microwave!)
  3. Cut the vanilla wafers into smaller rounds to fit neatly on top of the base of each pumpkin spice kiss (optional). I used the inner circle of a doughnut cutter to make the wafers the right size.
  4. Cover each vanilla wafer in the chocolate sauce.
  5. Place each dipped wafer on a plate lined with parchment paper, and put in the fridge to cool (about 15 minutes).
  6. When the chocolate has just set, press a mini chocolate chip on the top of the wafer (this will be the stem). On the bottom, press a pumpkin spice kiss (this represents the nut part of the acorn).
