Scone Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 7 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin canned
  • 3 tablespoons half-and-half
  • 1 egg large

Powdered Sugar Glaze Ingredients

  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk

Spiced Glaze Ingredients

  • 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ground ginger
  • 1 pinch ground cloves



  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or line with parchment paper. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices in a large bowl. Using a pastry knife, fork, or food processor, cut butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture is crumbly and no chunks of butter are obvious. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together pumpkin, half and half, and egg. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Form the dough into a ball.
  • Pat out dough onto a lightly floured surface and form it into a 1-inch thick rectangle (about 9 inches long and 3 inches wide). Use a large knife or a pizza cutter to slice the dough twice through the width, making three equal portions. Cut those three slices diagonally so that you have 6 triangular slices of dough. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 14-16 minutes. Scones should begin to turn light brown. Place on wire rack to cool.


  • Mix the powdered sugar and 2 tbsp milk together until smooth.
  • When scones are cool, use a brush to paint plain glaze over the top of each scone. As the white glaze firms up, make the spiced icing.


  • Combine the ingredient for the spiced icing together. Drizzle this thicker icing over each scone and allow the icing to dry before serving (at least 1 hour). A squirt bottle works great for this, or you can drizzle with a whisk.
