  • cups (340g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • cup (65g) packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup (113g) cold butter, cut into pieces
  • ½ cup (120g) canned pumpkin
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup (60ml) heavy cream OR half and half
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup (110g) powdered sugar
  • dash of cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and brown sugar. Using a pastry blender or two knives cut in butter until crumbly.

  3. In a small bowl, combine pumpkin, egg, cream, and vanilla. Combine with dry ingredients just until moistened.

  4. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and pat out into an 8" circle. Cut into 8 wedges. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 18-22 minutes or until lightly browned. Place on a wire rack to cool.

  1. In a small bowl combine the icing ingredients until smooth. Spread over the cooled scones.

Recipe Notes
  1. STORAGE: Store completely cooled leftovers at room temperature well covered for up to 2 days. Be sure to allow the icing to set before storing.
  2. FREEZER FRIENDLY: Store completely cooled leftovers in a freezer safe container for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight on the counter. 
  3. PUMPKIN PIE SPICE: If you don't have pumpkin pie spice replace it with the following: ½ teaspoon ground ginger, ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg, ⅛ teaspoon ground clove, and ⅛ teaspoon ground allspice.
  4. I prefer to use cream or half and half in scone recipes for the best texture. You can replace it with milk or even a dairy free milk but it WILL change the texture of the scone.
