Ingredients
  

For the Pumpkin Scones

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ cup unsalted butter COLD, cubed, (one stick)
  • 1 egg
  • 0.5625 cup pumpkin puree do NOT use pie filling (half cup + one tbsp)
  • 3 tablespoon whipping cream or half and half
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract seems like a lot but it's perfect!

For the Plain Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoon whipping cream

For the Pumpkin Spice Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1.5-2 tablespoon whipping cream

Instructions
 

For the Pumpkin Scones

  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
    Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice in a large bowl.
  • Cut your cold butter in small cubes, then use a pastry cutter or fork to cut it into the flour mixture until the pieces break up further. (It's okay for there to be chunks of butter in the dough - you want that)!
  • In a separate bowl, whisk pumpkin puree, cream or half and half, egg, and vanilla.
    Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture until all ingredients are well incorporated, but don't overmix.
  • Roll your dough into an oval shape on a floured surface so that it can be cut into 12 pieces, each about ½ an inch thick.
    Place all 12 scones on a non-stick pan.
    Bake for 10-15 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of a scone. I bake mine for 12 minutes.

For the Scone Glazes

  • While your scones cool for a few minutes, make your glazes.
  • Plain Glaze: Mix the powdered sugar and cream in a bowl. Start with 2 tbsp. of cream, and add up to one tablespoon more until you get the perfect glaze consistency.
    Pumpkin Spice Glaze: Mix the powdered sugar, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and cream in a bowl. Add more cream until you get the perfect glaze consistency.
  • I like to add each glaze to a separate Ziploc bag and cut the corner of each bag to use for piping the icing.
    First, do a zigzag pattern of plain glaze on each scone while they're still a bit warm.
    Next, do a zigzag pattern of the pumpkin spice glaze. 
    Feel free to spread the glazes on the scones or get creative with how you add them! 

Notes

I like to eat the scones while they're nice and warm. You can also keep them in an airtight container on the counter for a few days to enjoy later.
