Pumpkin Scones of Deliciousness

Hiya, lovelies!

I have a pretty popular recipe to share with you.  You know those delicious pumpkin scones at Starbucks?  These taste just the same.  Definitely a breakfast of champions, complete with the two glazes.

They’re easy to make too.  Try them out!

Pumpkin Scones with Regular and Spiced Glaze

Yield: 8 scones

Scones
2 cups flour
7 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
6 Tablespoons cold butter
1/2 cup canned pumpkin purée
3 Tablespoons half-and-half
1 large egg

Plain Glaze
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon milk

Spiced Glaze
1/2 cup + 1.5 Tablespoons powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon milk
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 pinch ground ginger
1 pinch ground cloves

1. Preheat oven to 425 F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture is very crumbly, and set aside.

3. In a separate bowl, mix together pumpkin, half-and-half, and the egg.  Fold into dry ingredients and form the dough into a ball.  Pat into a circle 1-inch thick on a lightly floured surface.  Slice into 8 triangles like you would a pizza.  Place on baking sheet and bake 12-16 minutes.  Keep an eye on it and remove when light brown.  Cool on wire rack.

4. For the plain glaze, mix the powdered sugar and milk until smooth.  Brush over the tops of the cooled scones.

5. For the spiced glaze, mix the ingredients together.  Drizzle over each scone, using a teaspoon.  Allow glaze to set about an hour before serving.

 

Enjoy!

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.

    lol aren’t they good?! (I had to sub the dairy, and I added more spices and a bit of pumpkin to the glaze) Yum! lol I had to make a double batch a couple days ago, as my husband really likes them!

    Good call on the pumpkin in the glaze. I was actually thinking of doing that next time, and maybe adding some maple extract!

    Looks yummy – course you have to make the twice…… I wise more recipes used the whole can of pumpkin….

    but sounds yummy and I’ve never had the one at Starbucks (never been in that store).

    @Judy – I definitely don’t mind making it twice, or doubling the recipe. This time around I used the leftovers to make some delicious pumpkin butter!
