Attention pumpkin spice lovers. I made you a scone I think you will really really really really really like. It can be your breakfast or dessert or midday snack or midnight snack...no judgement :)
Don't mind my messy baking process. According to strengthsfinder 2.0 my process is not always pretty, ha....BUT I get the job done. And seriously you guys, these scones get the job done!
I made them with a basic glaze but I think the next time I make them, I'm going to go all out and do a brown butter glaze (like the one on these banana scones) because brown butter wins always.
PUMPKIN SPICE SCONES
makes 16 scones
for the scones:
- 4 cups flour
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1.5 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp ground cloves
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup cold unsalted butter cut into cubes
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp + 1 tsp vanilla extract
for the white glaze:
- 2 cups icing sugar
- 1/4 cup milk
for the spiced glaze:
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 1/4 tsp each, cinnamon, cloves, ground ginger
- pinch of nutmeg
- 2 tbsp milk
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking pans with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl combine flour, spices, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- Use a pastry blender or fingers to cut butter into dry ingredients until the mixture looks like coarse sand.
- In another bowl mix together the pumpkin puree, milk, eggs, and vanilla extract.
- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix together until a soft dough is formed.
- Roll dough out on a floured surface. You should be able to get two large rectangles out of the dough about an inch thick.
- Cut each rectangle into 8 triangles (see above photo).
- Place on baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes.
- Mix the first glaze ingredients together and set aside then mix the spiced glaze ingredients together. If glaze is too thick, add more milk.
- When scones are completely cooled, add the first glaze, wait till dry and then drizzle the spiced glaze over.
Ohhh and these go very well with a homemade pumpkin spice latte.
