Pumpkin Spice Scones


These pumpkin spice scones are so fluffy and buttery and are a perfect fall treat! They are each decorated with a perfectly pumpkin spiced glaze.

In a medium bowl combine pumpkin puree, brown sugar, egg, heavy cream and vanilla.

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and pumpkin pie spice.

Cut the cold butter into the flour using a pastry cutter or a fork, until the butter is well incorporated into the dry ingredients.

Pour the wet ingredients in and gently mix until it is almost all combined. Dump the mixture onto a floured work surface. Use your hands and gently bring the dough together. Pat it down and fold the dough over itself a few times.

Gently pat the dough down and form it into a circular shape that is about 1-inch thick. Slice the dough into 8 triangular pieces.  Preheat an oven to 375°F. Bake the scones for 20 - 22 minutes 

While the scones are cooling, prepare the icing. Combine the confectioner's sugar and pumpkin pie spice in a small bowl. Add the milk, a little bit at a time, until a thick glaze forms.

Pipe the glaze onto the cooled scones to create a zigzag pattern. You can also use a spoon to drizzle on the icing.

Let the glaze harden for 15 minutes before serving.
