Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Glaze | Secret Recipe Club

It’s a new year of kicking it off with the Secret Recipe Club For January, I received Heather’s blog called – It’s Yummy to My Tummy.  While looking through her blog for the perfect recipe to make, I soon realized why her blog had a familiarity to it – she was paired with me back in June and made my Caprese Bites.  Heather likes to make people happy with her food and decided to add her collection of delightful treats to one place – her blog.

It is Sunday morning and I am a bit behind in my grocery shopping and realized I only had 4 eggs.  Hubby asked what’s for breakfast and I thought can’t make scrambled eggs since the egg supply was at an all time low along with no milk to be found in the refrigerator.  Then while deciding what to make from Heather’s blog, I found pumpkin scones, which would be just perfect, since they required no eggs and I did have some half n half in the refrigerator.  The big plus was that hubby loves anything with pumpkin. I know it is well past the pumpkin season, but what the heck – you have to make things you love regardless of the time of year. Who says you have to follow those “seasonal” rules?

I chose to make the spiced glaze for the top and doubled the spices to add that extra flavor to these breakfast treats.  In addition, I used a large cookie scoop to form round scones versus the triangle version.  The overall results were a yummy in my tummy treat and a great way to start a Sunday!

Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Glaze

2 Cup Flour
7 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
½ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
½ teaspoon Ground Cloves
½ teaspoon Ground Ginger
½ Cup + 1 Tablespoon of pumpkin puree
3 tablespoons half n half
1 Egg
6 Tablespoon of Chilled Butter, cut into small cubes

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices and mix together.  Next add the chilled butter and break down with your fingers into small pieces and mix into the flour until small flakes appear.  In a small bowl, mix together the half and half, egg and pumpkin puree and mix well.  Add to the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.  Use a large ice cream scoop to form large balls of dough on a baking sheet. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes.

Let cool then glaze with the spiced glaze. (Recipe below)

  1. Awesome looking scones! Great pictures! I wish I had these for breakfast. :-)

  2. YUM! I never make scones as much as I'd like and I have 2 birthdays coming up so now I know what I'm going to make for gifts! (Plus I always think pumpkin gets forgotten after November unfortunately.)

  3. Yum! I love how fluffy these look!

    I just joined SRC and will be posting in this group next month. Can't wait to bake with you!

  4. As always, your pictures and food both look amazing!

  5. Your scones look wonderful! I love Heather's blog. Great pick!

  6. These scones look scrumptious, love the spiced glaze!!

  7. These pumpkin scones look great. For me, this is the tail end of "when pumpkin sounds good" time of year, but nevertheless a nice recipe to keep in mind when September rolls back around. Great SRC post

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog and featuring the pumpkin scones. They really are a favorite here, almost like a comfort food.i like the scooper idea instead of rolling the dough out for scones too! Perfect time saver , will have to try that.

  9. the spiced glaze truly makes these scones extra special. I love pumpkin in baked goods and I havent had a scone in ages so I think its about time to get in the kitchen and start baking some pumpkin scones:)

  10. I am of the mindset that pumpkin is delicious anytime of year. These scones would be perfect with a cup of coffee in the morning. And I happen to have a can of pumpkin sitting in my pantry just waiting to be used. I must give these a try! Great seeing you last weekend, Lisa!

  11. I agree with Lisa - pumpkin should be all year round! These scones remind me that I promised the hubs a pumpkin pie soon. I know I'll have extra pumpkin puree, so these scones will be just the thing :)

  12. I'm currently on a scone kick right now! These are perfect. I also agree, pumpkin should be all year round - not just in the Fall.
