Instructions

  1. Begin by preheating the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine all dry scone ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Add the cubed butter. Use a food processor, a pastry cutter, forks, or your hands to get all of this to look like coarse corn meal.
  4. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, half & half, and the egg.
  5. Gently fold the pumpkin mixture into the dry ingredients until barely combined, being careful not to overmix.
  6. Dump the dough out onto a floured work surface, and pat it down to form a rectangle of approximately 9 by 3 inches.
    Note: if the dough is too sticky to work with, work in a little bit of flour. Make sure your hands are floured, too.
  7. Using a sharp, floured knife, cut the dough into 3 equal sections. Then slice each of the 3 sections diagonally to form 6 triangles of dough.
  8. Carefully transfer each triangle to your prepared baking sheet using a spatula. Bake at 450 degrees F for 14-16 minutes, or until puffed and a more golden brown color.
  9. Transfer the scones to a wire rack to cool.
  10. To make the sugar glaze: combine the milk and powdered sugar in a bowl; stir.
  11. To make the spice glaze: combine the milk, powdered sugar, and spices in a bowl; stir.
  12. Once the baked scones have cooled completely, go ahead and brush on the sugar glaze with a pastry brush.
  13. Once the layer of sugar glaze hardens, drizzle on the spice glaze with a whisk. You can use as much or as little as you like! Enjoy! :)
