I am usually a bit slow to get on the bandwagon and follow a trend. 
Take for instance, pumpkin recipes.   
Everybody on the blogosphere has been talking about them. 
I have seen some really good recipes. 
 I have seen some really great recipes.
I even went out and purchased about 5 cans of  pumpkin.
I just wasn’t inspired enough to make any of the recipes. 
Until today!
 I found this wonderful recipe at the blog of the Binomial Baker.   When you are finished here, stop on over and see what else she has cooking!

Pumpkin Spice Scones
Serves 6

Ingredients for Scones:

2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 TBL baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
6 TBL unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
3 TBL half and half

Ingredients for Plain Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar
2 TBL skim milk

Ingredients for Pumpkin Spice Glaze:

1 cup + 3 TBL powdered sugar
2 TBL skim milk
1/2 TBL pumpkin puree
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice


Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.  Cut in the melted butter until you have a crumbly  mixture.   

In another bowl, whisk the pumpkin puree, egg, and half and half until well combined.   Add to dry mixture and stir until just combined.

Place the dough on the baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper.  Pat it out until it is a rectangle that is about 10″ x 6″ and about 1″ deep.


Cut the dough into into three sections and then cut each of those sections into triangles.  Do not move them.  Bake as is for about 12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cook completely on a wire rack.

To make the plain glaze – mix the powdered sugar and skim milk in bowl until the sugar is completely dissolved.

To make the pumpkin glaze –  mix the pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, powdered sugar and skim milk until the sugar is completely dissolved.

Drizzle both glazes over the scones!  Admire, eat and enjoy!
