Pumpkin Scone Recipe

This is the perfect time of the year to try these pumpkin scone covered in white icing and drizzled with extra pumpkin icing.
I absolutely LOVE Starbucks pumpkin scones, anything with pumpkin is my favorite fall treat; so I decided to make my own pumpkin scones the other night and they were delicious.
What’s your favorite fall treat?

41/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
3 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 stick cold butter
1/2 cup apple sauce
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups canned pumpkin pure -make sure there are no spices or sugar added
3/4 cup buttermilk
Sugar Glaze:
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
4 Tbsp. milk
Spiced Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and preheat oven to 400F.
In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice;

cut in butter and mix until mixture will get like crumbs. In separate bowl, whisk egg, pumpkin, apple sauce and buttermilk. Stir pumpkin mixture into dry ingredients just until combined. (You’ll need to use your hands)

Place dough onto a lightly floured surface, knead couple times; divide it in half. Shape each portion into circle- about 8” pressing with your hands; the dough should be between 3/4″ – 1” thick. Cut each circle into eight- nine wedges.

Place triangles onto parchment lined baking sheet(s) 1” apart and bake for 17-20 minutes or until scones begin to brown around the edges and on top.

Remove scones from oven and allow them to cool completely.
In small bowl, mix 2 cups powdered sugar with 3-4 Tbsp. milk. Add more sugar or milk to reach the desired consistency. Use a brush to spread on completely cooled scones. I glazed them twice.

Prepare spiced glaze while first glaze is hardening. In small bowl, mix powdered sugar, milk, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.

Drizzle over the top of the first glaze.

Make yourself a cup of coffee and Enjoy!!!
