  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 stick salted butter cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla


  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar divided into 1 cup and 1/2 cup
  • 3 tbsp milk divided into 2 tbsp and 1 tbsp


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a cookie sheet or line it with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine all dry scone ingredients. Then, with clean hands – this is a perfect job for little ones who want to join you in the kitchen – massage cold butter cubes into the dry ingredients. The goal is to create a sand texture.
  • To the scone mix add pumpkin, milk, egg, and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Flour the counter well and roll the dough into a rectangle shape that is approximately one inch thick. With a pizza cutter, divide into four rectangles. Then cut those into triangles so you have eight scones. Or, 16 if you prefer mini scones
  • Transfer scone dough triangles onto the baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • While the scones bake, prepare the glazes. In one mixing bowl, whisk 1 cup powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of milk. In a separate mixing bowl whisk 1/2 cup powdered sugar, spices, and 1 tablespoon of milk. This gives you a heavy pour of plain glaze for each scone and a drizzle of spiced glaze zig zagged on top of that.
  • When the scones are done, remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack for at least 10 minutes. Add glaze, allow it to set, and then serve … with a creamy coffee or a steamed milk for little ones who would like their own “coffee”.
