This Pumpkin Scones recipe makes the softest, tender, and full of pumpkin flavor scones ever! The pumpkin vanilla glaze puts them over the top.


  • 2 cups of flour
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup pumpkin purée
  • ¼ cup cream
  • 1 egg, beaten

For the glaze:

For the pumpkin spice drizzle:

  • ¾ cup powdered sugar

  4. Cut in butter, or pulse in food processor until crumbly
  5. Stir in cream, egg, vanilla, and pumpkin until the dough just forms. Don’t overmix.
  6. Roll or press-out dough into a large circle on a floured surface, to about 1 inch thick
  7. Cut into 8 wedges and arrange on an ungreased or parchment-lined baking sheet so that scones don’t touch
