Pumpkin Scones With Spiced Glaze

This scone recipe is the best scone you will ever eat. Moist and tender on the inside, topped with a glaze then a pumpkin spiced glaze drizzled over the top. I love a delicious scone, and with the addition of the 2 glazes, these are amazing. This is Starbucks copycat recipe, they may be even better. Easy to make, within an hour you can enjoy these delicious scones.

You can enjoy these scones for morning breakfast, snack, dessert or at night watching tv. But no matter what, these will be a new tradition in your family. So glad I found this amazing recipe, hope you all enjoy as much as my entire family does..

Ingredients For The Scones:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 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 (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup  puree
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 Tablespoon half and half 

For The Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons milk or half and half 

For The Pumpkin Spiced Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, you may need another 2-3 tablespoons for desired thickness 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 Tablespoon Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons milk or half and half, if needed you may need a little more


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda and salt, whisk to combine, then add cold butter, using your fingers to work the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, milk, egg and vanilla. Make a well in your dry ingredients and 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 9-12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • To make the glaze, combine powdered 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 powdered 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, then let glaze set, place the spiced glaze into a ziploc bag, snip off the tip, then drizzling with spiced glaze.
  • Allow glazes to set before serving.
