2 cups all-purpose flour
7 Tablespoons granualted sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoonn salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
6 Tablespoons cold butter
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
3 Tablespoons half-and-half
1 large egg
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices in a large bowl or in bowl of food processor. Cut butter into the dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly.
- Whisk pumpkin, half and half, and egg together in a mixing bowl. Pour the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture and shape into a ball.
- Pat out dough onto a lightly floured surface and form it into a 1-inch thick 9x3-inch rectangle. Use a large knife or a pizza cutter to slice the dough twice through the width, making three equal portions. Cut those three slices diagonally so that you have 6 triangular slices of dough. Place on prepared baking sheet.
- Bake for 14-16 minutes. Scones should begin to turn light brown. Place on wire rack to cool.
I cut the dough into four equal portions rather than the three mentioned, making 8 slices rather than 6.
Also, the recipe includes a glaze as well as an icing. I didn't add these to the scones as we are not fans of such sweet toppings on scones. This was the first time I have made these, and I think I will sprinkle some sugar on top of them before baking the next time I make them. I also might enjoy some raisins in them.:-)
1 cup powdered sugar plus another 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons milk
- Mix the powdered sugar and 2 Tablespoons milk together until smooth. When scones are cool, use a brush to paint plain glaze over the top of each scone. This should give you more than enough glaze!
2 Tablespoons melted butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 pinch ginger
1 pinch ground cloves
- When the glaze has set, make the icing. Melt the butter in bowl. Gradually add the sugar and stir until moistened with butter. Add the ilk and stir to get a drizzling consistency. Stir in the spices. Drizzle this decoratively over the glazed scones.
Wouldn't these be a good treat for a Halloween morning breakfast?:-)
A recent shopping trip resulted in some good bargains. Some of them will appear in the next post!
