  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease 2 baking sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together all-purpose and whole wheat flours, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix in ginger, allspice, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate large bowl, cream butter until fluffy. Mix in applesauce, then slowly stir in 2 1/4 cups sugar until well blended. Mix in the eggs and pumpkin. Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Then stir in pecans and raisins.
  4. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets, leaving 2 inches between scones. Flatten scones with the back of the spoon.
  5. In a small bowl, stir together 3 tablespoons of sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle on top of scones.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 to 14 minutes. Remove, and let cool on cookie sheets 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool.

These were very good, I saw the comments about how these scones are very muffin-like, so I decided to actually make them as muffins. I halved the recipe and made 12 large muffins.

These are yummy but are more like muffins as stated. I didn't have applesauce so I used prune baby food instead and they came out fine. My husband loves them!

These were absolutely delicious, everyone loved them and I didn't change a thing. I used unsweetened applesauce. I called them "Pumpkin Muffin Tops." :) Don't forget the cinnamon-sugar on top!

Easy & delicious. Definitely more muffin in texture & taste than a scone. I used half splenda & half sugar (and accidentally used less sugar than called for - halved the recipe & used 1/3 c suga...

Very nice taste and super easy to make. I did not give this a 5 star rating because I really really really didn't want anything Cakey. I specifically wanted to make scones. If I knew it was goi...

These scones were easy to make and hard to mess up. I only used the ingredients I had (I substituted whole wheat flour for the all-purpose flour, and omitted the allspice, cloves, pecans, and r...

These are pretty good (but I felt not good enough to share with the neighbor I made them for). I *would* rate them as 3 stars if the poster didn't let us know they are more muffin like then scon...
