I made a slight change to the recipe….I used buttermilk instead of milk, and I’m lazy, so I used my food processor. In reference to my laziness, I also patted the dough into a large circle that I cut into eighths and baked it whole…….I said I was lazy!!

I must admit, I have never had a Starbucks Pumpkin Scone, but if they are anything like these……score one for Starbucks.

Well….Starbucks scores big with me on it’s coffee alone…….Caramel Macchiato …….Venti hot or Frappuccino…….my total fav!!!!

Don’t get me started on how much I love, love, love the Reduced Fat Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake. Want to see a grown woman cry? Drive me thru Starbucks and have them be out of Reduced Fat Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake……it’s not a pretty sight.

We do not live close enough to a Starbucks, but if we did……..lets just say I would be a frequent flyer.

Back to the scones……these have a lighter fluffier texture than a normal scone…….maybe it’s the pumpkin…..maybe it’s the buttermilk…….whichever….doesn’t matter, because they are sooooo good!
As I made mention to before, the glazes really push these over the top. Tim kept repeating how good the frosting was!

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • FOR THE GLAZE
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • FOR THE SPICED GLAZE
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.
  2. In a food processor, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda and salt. Add cold butter, pulse to work the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, milk, egg and vanilla. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and pulse until a soft dough forms.
  4. Place scone dough onto prepared baking sheet. Flatten into about an 8 inch circle with floured hands. Using a sharp knife dipped in flour, cut the scone circle into eighths leaving the circle intact. Place into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. 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.
  6. To make the spiced glaze, combine confectioners’ sugar, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and milk. Whisk until smooth; set aside.
  7. After scones have cooled slightly recut and make a small space between each scone.
  8. Let cool for 10 minutes and spoon the glaze on each scone before drizzling with spiced glaze.
  9. Allow glazes to set before serving.
