Starbucks Double Glazed Pumpkin Scones

Starbucks Double Glazed Pumpkin Scones

Oh. My. God.  I have never tasted a better scone.  Yes, the one at Starbucks is delicious– that’s why I went searching for a recipe for it online.   Baked at home, it is sooooo much better.  Moist and delicious, I have a feeling this will be my go-to scone recipe from now on.

I found this great recipe on Mom’s Who Think, and I adapted it just a bit– it is perfection.  I know that most people wait until fall to start cooking with pumpkin, but I stock up on it in the fall/winter, and I bake with it all year long.  It is one of my favorite ingredients.  This recipe is autumn in a bite.

This recipe makes six large scones.

Scones Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour
9 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
6 Tablespoons cold butter
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
3 Tablespoons half-and-half
1 large egg

Sugar Glaze Ingredients:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons whole milk

Spiced Glaze Ingredients:
1 cup powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons whole milk
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Scones Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

2. Lightly grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper.

3. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices in a large mixing bowl.

4. With a fork, pastry knife, or food processor, cut butter into the dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly and no chunks of butter remain. Set aside.

5. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk pumpkin, half and half, and egg.

6. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Form the dough into a ball.

7. Pat out dough onto a lightly floured surface and form it into a 1-inch thick rectangle (about 9 inches long and 3 inches wide).

8. Use a large knife to slice the dough into three equal portions. Cut diagonally to produce 6 triangular slices of dough.

9. Place on prepared baking sheet from step 2.

10. Bake for 14ā€“16 minutes until scones turn light brown.

11. Place on wire rack to cool.

Sugar Glaze Directions:
1. Mix the powdered sugar and 2 Tablespoon milk together until smooth.

2. Brush glaze over the top of each cooled scone.

Spiced Glaze Directions:
1. As sugar glaze firms, combine the spiced icing ingredients.

2. Use whisk to drizzle over each scone and allow to dry before serving.

Makes 6 pumpkin scones.

  1. Scones have always been my nemesis, but I made these this morning and they are delicious!! I couldn't believe how tender they were. Of course, the two glazes didn't hurt . . . šŸ˜€
