Pumpkin Scones

Pumpkin Scones

Fall is amazing and part of this amazingness is all things pumpkin…  Pumpkin pie, pumpkin carving, pumpkin seeds, and of course pumpkin scones!  Pumpkin scones get their deliciousness from pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice!  These scones are topped with a perfectly light, sugary glaze!Pumpkin Scones

You all know how much I love breakfast.  These scones are just another wonderful item to make me happy! You might be tempted to not add the glaze, but I made them once without the glaze….the glaze is needed.  These aren’t a sweet scone and the sweetness from the glaze brings out all the flavors in the scone.  Plate of SconesThis is a super sticky dough.  I’ve tried my regular method of forming a disc and the cutting into wedges.  It just didn’t work.  I finally figured the best way to deal with this dough is using an ice cream scooper and dropping mounds onto parchment paper.

    Now these would be a good breakfast treat to wake up to (I pinned it)! I also like the looks of your raspberry scones. And how are your chickens doing- do they survive your winter alright in the coop?

    You know what? Drop scones are some of my favorites anyways! I’ve tried both kinds, but I always end up going back to my drop scone recipe. I love the pumpkin addition here…sounds perfect for the season!

      You could just eat the glaze all by itself….but it’s better on the scone!
