Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Glaze

Pumpkin Scones with Spiced GlazeAs with my previous recipe posts, I am a huge pumpkin fan! So I will share a few of my favorite pumpkin recipes over the fall season. These Pumpkin Scones with not just one, but two glazes, included a spiced glaze, are so moist and tender. If you’re a pumpkin fan, these will be your go to scone recipe!

And as with any of my scone recipes, you can make these ahead of time to point you cut them, then freeze them and just take out however many you want to bake and let the defrost partially while the oven is preheating. I usually make a double batch and freeze them so I can easily make them in the mornings at our Bed and Breakfast Inn.

This recipe, and 499 others can be found in our cookbook “Rocky Mountain Lodge & Cabins’ MORE Favorite Recipes” which you can PURCHASE HERE.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 6 Tbsp cold butter

  • 1 cup + 3 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp whole milk
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • Pinch ground ginger
  • Pinch ground cloves

Instructions:

  1. SCONES:

  2. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  3. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices into a large bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into dry ingredients until it is crumbly and resembles peas; set aside.

  4. In a separate bowl whisk together pumpkin, half and half, and egg. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients; form into a ball.

  5. Pat out dough on a lightly floured surface and form into a 1-inch thick circle. Use a large knife or a pizza cutter to slice the dough into 6 or 8 pieces, depending on how big you want them. Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes. Scones should begin to turn light brown. Place on wire rack to cool. Top with glazes.

  6. POWDERED SUGAR GLAZE:

  7. Mix powdered sugar and milk together until smooth. When scones are cool, brush the glaze over the top of each scone.

  8. SPICED GLAZE:

  9. When the white glaze has set, combine the spiced glaze ingredients and drizzle over each scone and allow to set before serving.
