  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 3/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 dashes ground cloves
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chilled butter (cut into small pieces)
  • 1/3 cup lowfat yogurt
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (canned pumpkin is fine)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients together. Cut in butter to the dry ingredients until coarse crumbs form. Mix wet ingredients together and add to dry ingredients. Mix until just combined (make sure not to overmix). Dump dough onto counter and kneed it just a couple of times to form into a smooth ball. Flatten ball and cut into 8 pieces. Place on baking sheet and, if desired, brush with an egg wash and sugar. Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes.
