pumpkin scones

Fall and baking just go together, am I right? 
I had a little get together with some friends the other night and wanted to make something that would make the house smell like fall. Enter pumpkin scones. 


Ingredients

2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. cloves
1/4 t. ginger
6 T. cold butter, cut into cubes
1/2 cup + 3 T. pumpkin puree 

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Add butter with a pastry cutter (or two knives, cutting against each other) until the mixture looks like pebbles. Gently stir in the pumpkin until barely mixed. Divide the dough in half and make two 6-inch rounds. Cut each round into 6 wedges. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 13-15 minutes. Let cool completely and drizzle with sugar and spice glaze. 

Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar
2 T. milk 

Mix together until frosting form. Drizzle half of the glaze over cooled scones. Then add: 

1/4 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
pinch of ginger
pinch of cloves

... to make your spice glaze. Drizzle the rest of it over the scones. Let the glaze set before eating. 

Enjoy!

If these scones are what you would be serving for the get together, I will really join you despite whatever odds. So yummy! I think I can invite friends over and have a little catching up with friends, just so I can have reason to prepare these pumpkin treats. Love your post!
