PUMPKIN SPICE SCONES


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!

Pumpkin Spice Scones taste just like Starbucks but are waaaaaay cheaper.

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.

Delicious Pumpkin Spice Scones...better than Starbucks!

PUMPKIN SPICE SCONES

makes 16 scones

Ingredients:

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 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking pans with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, spices, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. Use a pastry blender or fingers to cut butter into dry ingredients until the mixture looks like coarse sand.
  4. In another bowl mix together the pumpkin puree, milk, eggs, and vanilla extract. 
  5. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix together until a soft dough is formed.
  6. Roll dough out on a floured surface. You should be able to get two large rectangles out of the dough about an inch thick. 
  7. Cut each rectangle into 8 triangles (see above photo).
  8. Place on baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes.
  9. Mix the first glaze ingredients together and set aside then mix the spiced glaze ingredients together. If glaze is too thick, add more milk.
  10. When scones are completely cooled, add the first glaze, wait till dry and then drizzle the spiced glaze over.
  11. Enjoy!

Ohhh and these go very well with a homemade pumpkin spice latte.

Happy Monday!
