It's Fall product launch week and we are in full swing Fall mode over here! We had our super fun Fall photoshoot day last week and I whipped up some super yummy Fall treats for styling (and snack breaks, of course). One of my very favorites were these pumpkin scones.
What I love about scones is that they are so easy to make. You can whip these up for a super yummy Fall breakfast that pairs perfectly with a hot cup of coffee. These pumpkin scones have all of the Fall spices you love and they are topped with regular glaze as well as a delicious spiced glaze that includes some cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Holy tastebuds is it good, y'all! These also keep pretty well so you can enjoy them for a few mornings in a row. Just store them in an air-tight container for up to three days!
Now, go make yourself some of these delicious pumpkin scones, grab a hot cup of coffee in your favorite CFL mug, and make a wish that Fall weather comes ASAP!
PUMPKIN SCONES WITH SPICED GLAZE
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter - cold, cut into cubes
- 1/2 cup pumpkin pureé
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup + 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- pinch cloves
- pinch nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon milk
Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
In a large bowl whisk the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or fork. Work it until the butter is no larger than the size of peas. It will resemble a crumble. Set aside.
In a medium sized bowl add the pumpkin, milk, egg, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
Using a spatula, fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Turn out the mixture onto a clean work surface and knead until everything is evenly combined. The dough will be fairly sticky.
Pat the dough into an 8 inch circle. Cut into 8 equal triangles.
Place scones on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes before glazing.
Make the glazes by combining them in 2 separate bowls. Whisk to combine the ingredients.
Use a spoon to drizzle the glazes over each scone and ENJOY!
