~what you will need…

For the Pumpkin Scones:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
8 tablespoons cold butter
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
3 tablespoons half and half
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the Simple Sugar Glaze:

1 cup (125 grams) powdered sugar, sifted
1 to 2 tablespoons half and half

For the Spiced Glaze:

1 cup (125 grams) powdered sugar, sifted
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 to 2 tablespoons half and half

~what to do…

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper set aside.
In a large bowl or food processor, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda and salt. Add cold butter, work the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs.
In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, milk, egg and vanilla. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula until a soft dough forms.
Working on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together. Using a rolling pill, roll the dough into a 10- by 7-inch rectangle, about 1-inch thick. Using a knife or a pizza cutter, cut the rectangle in half lengthwise, then cut into 2 even pieces crosswise, making four rectangles. Then cut each each rectangle into two triangles, making 8 triangles.
Place scones onto prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
To make the glaze, combine confectioners’ sugar and milk. Whisk until smooth. If the glaze is too thick, add more milk as needed; set aside.
To make the spiced glaze, combine confectioners’ sugar, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and milk. Whisk until smooth; set aside.
When the scones are done, cool for 10 minutes and spoon the glaze on each scone let set before drizzling with spiced glaze.
