Pumpkin Scones

My Hubby and I took the day off this past Sunday and drove to Miami to cheer on the Packers. I knew I needed a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks for the car ride, but this time I wanted something besides a coffee cake to enjoy with my latte. The night before our trip I did a little searching and came across these Pumpkin Scones. 
 
 

It was like it was meant to be. The two paired perfectly together. Some may think it's too much pumpkin in one sitting, but if you're a pumpkin fanatic like I am, you'll understand.
 

 
Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
3 tablespoons milk
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
 
For the Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
 
For the Spiced Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ginger
Pinch of nutmeg
2 tablespoons milk

 
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
 
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder,
cloves, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda and salt.

 
Add cold butter. With your fingers work the butter
into the dry ingredients, until it looks like coarse crumbs.

 
In a bowl, whisk together pumpkin, milk, egg and vanilla.


 
Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir until a soft
dough forms.

 
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
Knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together.
Use a rolling pin or your floured hands, and roll the dough
into a 10x7 inch circle, about 1 inch thick.
With a knife or pizza cutter, cut out 8 triangles.

 
Place scones onto prepared baking sheets.

 
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted
into the middle of each scone, comes out clean.


 
In the meantime prepare each glaze into two
separate bowls, and set aside.

Plain glaze-combine all ingredients into one bowl and stir
 

Spiced glaze-combine all ingredients into one bowl and stir

 
Glaze each one with the plain glaze first.
Allow to set for 5 minutes, then drizzle
the spiced glaze in zig-zag pattern
over the plain glaze.

 
Allow the glaze to fully harden before placing
in air tight storage containers.
