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!

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.

Then, enjoy!
