Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Combine flour, 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger in the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix using the paddle attachment. Add butter to the bowl and toss using a spatula to ensure butter is coated in flour mixture. Mix until mixture resembles cornmeal with butter pieces no bigger than a pea, about 2 minutes.

  • Whisk pumpkin, egg, and half-and-half together in a bowl until blended. Fold pumpkin mixture into flour mixture until dough can be formed into a ball.

  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface press with your hands into a long rectangle, 3/4- to 1-inch thick. Use a pizza cutter to cut dough into 4 rectangles. Cut each rectangle into 2 triangles. Place dough triangles onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until scones begin to brown around the edges and on top, about 15 minutes.

  • Transfer scones to a wire rack to cool completely, about 20 minutes.

  • Mix powdered sugar and milk together in a small bowl, using more sugar or more milk to reach the desired consistency. Use a brush to spread glaze on the cooled scones. Allow to harden, about 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, mix powdered sugar, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves together in a small bowl. Drizzle spiced glaze over the first glaze and allow to harden completely, about 10 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

Cut rectangles into 4 smaller triangles for 16 mini scones.

The scones were excellent. Used evaporated milk instead of the half n half because that is what I had in my pantry. I will make these again. Read More

EXCELLENT! Better than other pumpkin scones I've made. I think this one stands out because of the second flavored icing (which I absolutely love). I prepped most of it the night before, so it was very easy to make them for breakfast. Planning to keep this recipe for a very long time! I made no changes and they were perfect--moist and really good pumpkin spice flavor is dough and then on top. Read More
