Servings: 8 scones


For the scones:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, frozen and grated
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg

For the vanilla glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tbsp milk

For the spiced glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tbsp milk


To make the scones:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. Add frozen grated butter and toss with the dry ingredients.
  • In another large bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, milk, egg and vanilla. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a wooden spoon until a soft dough forms.
  • On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough a couple of times until it comes together.
  • Place dough on your prepared baking sheet and pat out to an 8-inch circle. Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, cut 8 even wedges from the circle. Separate wedges on baking sheet.
  • Place baking sheet into oven and bake for 12 - 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove scones from baking sheet to wire rack to cool completely before glazing.

To make the vanilla glaze:

  • Combine powdered sugar and milk. Whisk until smooth. If the glaze is too thick, add more milk as needed.
    Once the scones are cooled, spoon vanilla glaze over scones. Allow to set and harden before adding the spiced glaze.

To make the spiced glaze:

  • Combine powdered sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and milk. Whisk until smooth. One the vanilla glaze has set, drizzle the spiced glazed over the scones and allow to set before enjoying.
