Better than Starbucks, easy too!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SCONE:
  • 1 cup Canned Pumpkin Puree
  • ⅓ cups Heavy Cream
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 4-¼ cups Flour
  • ¾ cups Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cloves
  • ¾ teaspoons Nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • ¾ cups Butter, Cold, Cut In Cubes
  • FOR THE SUGAR GLAZE:
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
  • FOR THE CINNAMON GLAZE:
  • 1-½ cup Powdered Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Allspice
  • 2 Tablespoons Heavy Cream (may Need Up To 3 Tablespoons)

Preparation

For the scones: In a small bowl, mix the pumpkin, heavy cream and eggs with a whisk. Set aside.

In mixer bowl, using paddle attachment, mix flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and spices. Add in cold butter cubes and mix until crumbly. Slowly add in pumpkin mixture and mix until thoroughly combined.

Divide dough in half, and form the dough into a 12×5 inch rectangle. If it’s too sticky, using your hands, mix in enough flour so it is easier to shape.

Cut dough into triangles by making three vertical cuts (you should now have 3 rectangles. Cut each of the rectangles by making an X, I use a pizza cutter. Then make ONE horizontal cut across the center. You should have 18 triangles. (See my blog for a picture if you need a visual)

Place each triangle onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for about 13-15 minutes. Repeat with the other half of dough.

Cool on rack. Make sugar glaze by whisking the sugar with heavy cream. Using a brush, paint the tops of each scone with the glaze.

To make the cinnamon glaze, whisk all the ingredients together until smooth. Pour into a Ziploc bag and cut the corner off. Drizzle the glaze over all the scones. Allow to dry (about 15 minutes). Eat and enjoy!

Tasty! I added chocolate chips which added a little more wow to the scones. I rolled them out too thick, so I added another layer of icing when the first one hardened, prior to drizzling the cinnamon icing. Took some to my friend who loved them.

Delicious! I’ve passed this recipe on to my mom and my 4 sisters, and its now officially in our family cookbook! Just the right moistness (scones can get very dry), just the right flavours, just right for a cold day in Autumn, cozied up with a book and a mug of hot chai! Thank you!

These were easier than I thought to make. So Yummy. I didn’t have enough ground cloves, so I thought they could have used a little more spice. I
