These spiced pumpkin scones are perfect for a light Thanksgiving breakfast, or Christmas morning! Makes 12 – 16 scones.
Pumpkin Scones Ingredients:
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (or your favorite flour, I like to use Einkorn)
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 cup soffened butter
- 3/4 cup Solid pack of canned pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup cream
How to make Spiced Pumpkin Scones
In a medium mixing bowl, combine your dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, and salt… Mix well. Cut butter into the flour mixture, or use a cheese grader to grate cold butter, till your mixture looks like course crumbles.
Then, add your pumpkin and cream to your dry mixture, and mix JUST until a dough forms. Don’t over-mix.
Lightly knead your dough on a floured counter 10 times, and pat it flat into about an inch and a half thick and 7-inch wide circle.
Use a dough scraper or knife to cut your dough into sit to eight wedges.
Place your wedges onto a parchment-lined or ungreased baking sheet.
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F.
Bake at 450 for 12-14 minutes just until they’re a light golden color.
Serve warm with butter, apple butter, or maple glaze.
What to serve with Spiced Pumpkin Scones?
I think eggs are the perfect combination with these beautiful festive scones! The savory protein-packed eggs give this brunch or breakfast balance. They are also lovely served with sausages, bacon, fresh fruit, yogurt parfaits, and orange juice!
