Ingredients:

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk

For the Spiced Glaze:

  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda and salt. Add cold butter, using your fingers to 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 large 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 before drizzling with spiced glaze.

Allow glazes to set before serving.
