Pumpkin Scones

I found this recipe for pumpkin scones, which is supposedly like Starbucks pumpkin scones.  I was  in the mood for Fall baking, even though we have record temperatures over 100!!   I adapted this recipe, as the original made 6 large scones & had 2 glazes.  To cut the calories, I made 12 & only one glaze.  If you like pumpkin, I hope you give them a try!  Maybe Fall will arrive in Texas soon!!!!!!

2 c. flour
7 T. sugar
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 t. ground nutmeg  (I like whole nutmeg, freshly grated)
1/4 t. ground cloves
1/4 t. ground ginger
6 T. cold butter
1/2 c. canned pumpkin
3 T. half-and-half
1 egg


1 c. powdered sugar
2 T. milk
1/4 t. ground cinnamon
1/8 t. ground nutmeg
1 pinch ginger
1 pinch ground cloves

To Make the Scones:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Lightly oil a baking sheet or line with parchment paper or silpat.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt & spices in food processor.  Add the butter, which has been cut into 6 pieces & pulse until no chunks of butter are obvious. 

In a separate bowl, whisk the pumpkin, half & half & egg.  Add to the dry ingredients & pulse until the mixture forms a ball.

Pat out dough onto a lightly floured surface & form into a 1-inch thick rectangle (about 9" long & 3" wide).  Use a knife to slice the dough twice through the width making 3 equal portions.  Cut those three slices in an X shape so that you get 12 triangles of dough.  Place on baking sheet.

Bake for about 14 minutes.  They should be lightly browned.  Place on wire rack to cool.

Make the spiced glaze, by combining all the ingredients. When the scones are cool,  paint this glaze onto each scone with a brush, or just drizzle.  Make sure to let them dry for an hour.  Freeze any leftovers.

Makes 12
