Pumpkin Scones


Savour the taste of Fall
in these spicy scones

A "Starbucks copycat" recipe.
There's no Starbucks in this region
I just had to make them.

Great with a cup of tea or coffee.




Ingredients:

2 cups Flour
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp ground Cinnamon
3/4 tsp ground Cloves
1/2 tsp ground Ginger
1/2 tsp ground Nutmeg
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Butter cubed

1/2 cup Pumpkin Puree
I used my Homemade
Pumpkin Puree.
(Canned puree with no spices can be used also)
3 tbsp Milk
large Egg
2 tsp Vanilla Extract


The Glaze:

1 cup Icing Sugar
Very good... no spices
2 tablespoons Milk


The Spiced Glaze:
1 cup Icing Sugar
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Cloves
1/4 tsp Ginger
Pinch of Nutmeg
2 tablespoons Milk

Preheat Oven to 400 deg. F.
******************************************************************************
Whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, the ground spices, and salt.

Cut Butter in cubes
Work butter into the flour mixture
 until it resembles coarse crumbs.

In a smaller bowl, whisk together Pumpkin Puree
 Milk, Egg and Vanilla

Mix with dry ingredients
forming a dough, kneel 3-4 times
on a floured surface. 
Roll into a 7 by 10 inch rectangle.
Cut into 8 triangles.
Place on 2 baking sheets,
 


Bake 10-12 minutes
or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
cool at lease 10 mins.on a wire rack.
To make the glazes
whisk the icing sugar and milk together
add the ground spices in the Spicy Glaze.
Spread on the glaze,
and drizzle on the spicy glaze.
