Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Glaze


I saw this recipe over at Brown Eyed Baker and couldn't resist. They made for such a great Fall breakfast! It made me wish I was having brunch with my girlfriends. I fear the beauty of these was entirely lost on my crew of boys, but they ate them just the same. I, on the other hand, ate mine daintily on this adorable plate! So next time you are feeling in Fall mood, whip up a batch of these!

Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Glaze
(12 scones)

the scones

2 cups flour
7 T sugar
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/4 t ground cloves
1/4 t ground ginger
6 T cold butter
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
3 T half and half (I used cream, it is what I had)
1 egg

powdered sugar glaze

1 cup plus 1 T powdered sugar
2 T milk

spiced glaze

1 cup plus 3 T powdered sugar
2 T milk
1/4 t cinnamon
1/8 t nutmeg
1 pinch of ground ginger
1 pinch of ground cloves

Preheat the oven to 425. Grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves in a large bowl. Using a fork cut in the butter until there are no more large chunks. In a separate bowl mix together the half and half, egg and pumpkin. Fold this into the dry ingredients until a dough forms. On a lightly floured surface, pat the dough into a 1 inch thick rectangle that is 3 times longer than it is wide. Using a knife or a pizza cutter, cut the dough twice through the width making 3 equal portions. Now cut an "x" through each section so you end up with 12 triangles. Put these on the cookie sheet and bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown (mine only took about 9 minutes, so watch they closely). Cool completely on a wire rack.

Make the powdered sugar glaze by mixing the milk and powdered sugar together until smooth. Once the scones are cold, brush the powdered sugar glaze over them evenly. Allow this to get firm.

Mix the ingredients for the spiced glaze all together. Once the powdered sugar glaze is firm on the scones, drizzle the spiced glaze over the top and allow this to set before serving.

  2. That spiced glaze sounds yummy. I think it would even be great on pumpkin bread as well.
