Pumpkin Scones

Recipe Details:

When I watched Ree Drummond making these scones on Pioneer Woman, I wondered - would it be possible to make them without flour, eggs, or dairy? The answer is YES, and these delicious treats are great for breakfast or as an afternoon snack with your coffee or tea. I found the icing to be very thick, like a cake icing, so I'm suggesting that you add more liquid or cut back on the sugar.
