Glazed Pumpkin Scones Are Perfect To Serve This Time Of Year
There’s just something about cool weather, warm jackets, fires in the fireplace, pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg that just “goes” together, right? The traditional flavors of Fall are definitely present in these delicious scones! That’s why these glazed PUMPKIN scones are perfect for this time of year!
These Treats Are So Good
These scones are ridiculously delicious! They are NOT crumbly and dry, and that’s a good thing because there’s nothing worse than that in a scone.
The pumpkin scones are flavored with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves. These traditional spices combine to create the unique “Fall” pumpkin spice flavor featured in these scones.
Get comfy on your couch or in front of a nice fire in the fireplace and enjoy every bite of these Fall inspired glazed pumpkin scones! If you’ve never made scones before, no worries. They are very easy to make, and you will love the results!
Scones, Scone… And More Scones!
I didn’t take a bunch of photos to document the process this time. If you’d like to see photos of the “basics” for making scones, you can see them in my recipe for Chocolate Chip Orange Scones. I also have a LOTS of scone recipes listed in the Recipe Index, found at the top of each blog post. I’m confident there will be a variety there you will enjoy! Here is a collage of some of them!
Hope you enjoy making these glazed pumpkin scones, and trust that you will enjoy them as much as we do. Have a fantastic day!

Recipe Source: http://www.gonnawantseconds.com/2011/10/double-glazed-pumpkin-scones/
- 2 cups flour
- 7 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 6 Tablespoons cold , unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- 3 Tablespoons half and half
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup + 1 TBSP powdered sugar
- 2 Tablespoons milk
- 1 cup + 3 TBSP powdered sugar
- 2 Tablespoons milk
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 pinch ground ginger
- 1 pinch ground cloves
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly oil (or spray) a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices in a large bowl. Using a pastry blender, or fork, (or just slightly pulse these ingredients in a food processor), cut the butter into the dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly and there are no obvious big chunks of butter. Set the bowl aside.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, half and half, and egg. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix together, and then form the dough into a ball.
- Pat out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and form into a circle, rolling or shaping it out to about 1 inch high and approx. 8 inches wide. Using a pizza cutter or a long, sharp knife (I'm a knife girl, myself), slice dough circle in half, width-wise, then equally cut each half into 3 pieces (just like cutting a pie, right?). You should end up with 6 scones. (*If you want some really small, light-bite scones: divide the dough ball in half and form two wedges, then cut as usual.)
- Bake scones at 425 degrees for 14-16 minutes on prepared baking sheet (*slightly less time if making the much smaller scones). Scones should begin to turn light brown. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Add glaze after scones have cooled completely. Serves 6. Enjoy!
- To make Glaze #1 (plain glaze): Mix the powdered sugar and 2 TBSP milk till smooth. When scones have cooled, use a pastry brush to "paint" the glaze over the top of each scone. Let dry (harden) slightly.
- To make Glaze #2 (spiced glaze): Mix the ingredients for the spiced glaze together. Drizzle this thicker glaze over the plain glaze and allow the glaze to dry (harden) before serving (approx. 1 hour). It is easy to drizzle this glaze with a whisk (or a squirt bottle works fantastic!).
If you want smaller scones, there are 2 options. 1) Slice dough wedge into 8 wedges before baking, OR 2) Divide dough into 2 rounds, then cut each one into 6 small scones. If cooking the much smaller portions (option 2), remember to adjust baking time... they will take less time to bake.
