Pumpkin Scones

Pumpkin Scones

We are smack dab in the middle of Fall and I am absolutely loving it. Give me all the Fall things!!! I want the leaves, and the weather, and the sweaters, and the baking of all things pumpkin of course. Our Pumpkin Scones will give you all the Fall vibes. These cake-like scones make an excellent addition to breakfast or brunch and pair wonderfully with a Pumpkin Spice Latte if I do say so myself. And don’t you dare skimp on that glaze!! It’s sweetness is the perfect compliment to the savory pumpkin flavor. Pumpkin lovers will be all about this one!

Here’s all you’ll need: flour, brown sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, butter, eggs, canned pumpkin, milk, and confectioners’ sugar.

Pumpkin Scones ingredients list

In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, 1-1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Stir with a whisk to combine.

Flour, brown sugar, baking powder, 3 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt whisked together in a large mixing bowl.

Next using a knife, a fork, or a pastry blender, cut in the butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Now I absolutely hate having extra tools cluttering up my kitchen drawers. But oh my goodness I wish I would have bought a pastry blender years ago. Seriously you can grab one for like $5. Totally worth it.

Butter being cut into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

Add the egg, pumpkin, and 1/4 cup milk to a separate bowl and whisk it all up! It doesn’t seem like there’s a lot of liquid in this recipe but trust me when I say these Pumpkin Scones will bake up nice and moist. It’ll be love at first bite.

Eggs, milk and pumpkin whisked together in a separate mixing bowl.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just moistened. The dough will be sticky! Turn on a lightly floured surface. Continue to knead (about 10 times) until a soft dough forms, soaking up the additional flour as you go.

Press the dough into an 8 inch circle, then cut it into eight wedges. Separate the wedges and spread them out evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet. Parchment paper = not only better baking results but also easier clean up. It’s a win win!! Brush the wedges with the remaining 1/4 cup of milk. Bake in a 400 degree preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the pumpkin scones are golden brown.

Remove the scones from the oven and place on wire racks to cool. Cool for 10 minutes. Add the confectioners’ sugar, 1-1/2 Tablespoons of milk, and 1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice to a small mixing bowl. Whisk until a creamy glaze forms. Even the glaze smells nice and pumpkin-y!

Drizzle the glaze over the warm scones to finish. Load ’em up too cause man, that glaze is just delish!!! Pumpkin Scones are best served still slightly warm from the oven. Makes ya feel all wam and cozy on the inside! If you love all things pumpkin then you’ll wanna try our Pumpkin Waffles next!

Pumpkin Waffles with Maple Whipped Cream

Pumpkin Waffles with Maple Whipped Cream

It’s that time of the year again….my favorite time of the year……Pumpkin EVERYTHING Season!!!!! Last week I celebrated with my very first pumpkin spice latte of the season from Starbucks. I know, I know! Basic white girl….and I’m totally ok with that! I will proudly wear my yoga pants and messy bun and eat all things pumpkin spice from now until Thanksgiving. Who’s with me????? May I suggest that you start with this ahhh-mazing recipe?!? These pumpkin waffles are the absolute best way to kick off Fall and put you in that pumpkin state of mind.  They’re pretty simple to make and the added touch of homemade whipped cream will make you feel ultra fancy. Bust out your waffle iron!! You bout to get hooked!!

Here’s all you’ll need: Bisquick, pumpkin pie spice, milk, canned pumpkin, white sugar, vanilla extract, butter, vegetable oil, an egg, heavy cream, maple syrup, pecans and cinnamon to garnish (optional).

In a large bowl, mix together Bisquick, sugar, and pumpkin spice. The pumpkin spice has arrived!!!


Next whisk in the milk, followed by the canned pumpkin and vanilla extract. Mix until combined. Then add in the egg, oil, and melted butter. Continue to whisk until all ingredients are incorporated. In life and in baking, you can’t be afraid to take whisks!

Pour heavy cream and maple syrup into a separate bowl. Mix on lowest speed for 30 seconds. Gradually increase speed every thirty seconds or so until you reach the highest setting.

Beat on high for several minutes, until stiff peaks begin to form. I find it helpful to move the beaters in a back and forth motion in the bowl.


And there you have it! Your very own flavored whipped cream. Ta-da! Keep refrigerated until ready to use.

Spray a waffle iron with cooking spray and preheat. Pour a small amount of batter in the tray. This big guy takes close to half a cup of batter (for reference). Close the lid and bake. Most machines will have a timer or light to let you know when the waffle is done.


Carefully remove the waffle with a spatula and onto my plate, I mean, onto your plate!

Now comes the fun part! Cover with maple syrup, a generous dollop of that homemade whipped cream, and garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon and pecans!! OMG!! YOU GUYS!!! Total gourmet Fall breakfast in the comfort of your own home! I really love to make this one for house guests, well, cause I like to show off!

What’s your favorite pumpkin inspired thing to eat or drink?
