You know those annoying people already freaking out about Pumpkin Spice everything when it’s barely September?
I am one of those people.
I’m the first one in line at Starbucks for a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and I’m always looking for new pumpkin treats and recipes to try. My newest find is definitely a winner, so I wanted to share it with you. Super easy to make and perfect for breakfast, dessert, or with a glass of wine after the kids are in bed. I hope you love them as much as I do!
Pumpkin Spice Scones
2 1/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, preferably cold
1/2 cup whipping cream plus 2 Tablespoons
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
2 teaspoons pumpkin spice mix, plus extra for sprinkling
1/2 cup Pumpkin Spice Candy Melts
2 teaspoons shortening or lard
Preheat oven to 425F
Stir all dry ingredients together, set aside.
Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in one egg at a time, then the 1/2 cup whipping cream, then the pumpkin puree and spices.
Add the dry mixture into the pumpkin mixture one cup at a time, being careful not to overmix.
Pour the mixture out onto a clean, floured surface and roll into a large circle, no more than 2″ thick.
Cut into “pizza slice” triangles, and then brush overtop with the 2 Tablespoons whipping cream. Sprinkle on additional pumpkin spice mix.
Bake on a lined baking sheet for 10-15 minutes until golden and scones have formed a hard crust.
Cool on a baking sheet and meanwhile make the glaze. Melt the candy melts along with the shortening in a microwavable mug in 20 second bursts, stirring well in between.
You can pipe the glaze onto the scones, or drizzle on with a spoon.
