Pumpkin Scones Recipe @pinch

These pumpkin scones are better than anything at a coffee shop. They are light and airy in the center, while slightly crisp outside, with the right sugar balance and warm spices. The scone is not overly sweet, but the white glaze brushed on top adds a bit of sweetness. The spice glaze drizzled on top gives them a pumpkin spice feel. Perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack. A bit of a different take on your plain old scone... pumpkin scones with a spice glaze.

Intructions :
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or line with parchment paper
  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices in a large bowl
  • Using a pastry knife, fork, or food processor, cut butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture is crumbly and no chunks of butter are obvious. Set aside
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together pumpkin, half and half, and egg
  • Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients
  • Mix until a dough forms. Shape the dough into a ball
  • Pat out dough onto a lightly floured surface and form it into 3 1-inch thick rounds
  • Use a large knife or a pizza cutter to slice the dough in 4 making equal pie slice shaped portions
  • Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 14 - 16 minutes. Scones should begin to turn light brown. Place on a wire rack to cool
  • TO MAKE THE PLAIN GLAZE: Mix the powdered sugar and 2 Tbsp milk together until smooth. When the scones are cool, use a brush to paint plain glaze over the top of each scone. AS THAT WHITE GLAZE FIRMS UP, MAKE THE SPICED ICING: Combine the ingredient for the spiced icing together
  • Drizzle this thicker icing over each scone and allow the icing to dry before serving (at least 1 hour). A squirt bottle works great for this or you can drizzle with a whisk.
