5. Put the scones on a parchment lined baking sheet
6. Sprinkle with a little more pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon (optional)
7. Put your baking sheet inside a larger baking sheet to prevent the bottoms from cooking too fast
8. Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until they pass the toothpick test
9. Remove from oven and set on a cooling rackCoconut Frosting

2 Cups coconut Flakes
1/2 C Coconut Oil

In a food processor put the coconut flakes in and process it for about 15 minutes till it forms a paste. Add the Coconut paste you made to the remaining ingredients in a mixer or with a hand mixer until creamy. Spread over your scones…… Nom Nom Nom
