I came up with this recipe because I love scones and wanted to incorporate their texture and delicate taste into a cookie. So far, I have baked these 3 times and each attempt was successful. If you like scones and tea, this is a nice change. Because of the pumpkin in the recipe, I used Halloween cookie cutters, but any shape will do. Twice I used "fresh" frozen pumkin, thawed, but canned also worked well. The yield I give is using a 2 to 21/2 inch cutter.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In mixer bowl on medium speed, blend butter, brown sugar and orange rind until well mixed. Add egg, pumpkin and vanilla and mix some more until nicely incorporated.
  3. In separate bowl, sift together flour and spices. Add to mixer bowl and mix until a very loose dough forms. Turn dough onto a sheet of plastic wrap, form a ball, covered with wrap. Chill 1 hour.
  4. On surface lightly dusted with confectioner's sugar, roll dough out about 1/4" thick. Use cutters to shape cookies. Place on ungreased baking sheets and bake 10-12 minutes, until golden brown on bottoms (like a scone).
  5. Cool cookies on rack. While still warm I spread a scone glaze on top: mix confectioners sugar, a little orange juice, cinnamon, and vanilla extract until a thin glaze forms. Spread over warm cookies. I also add raisins as decorations, adhered to the glaze, at this point.

My kids loved these. I didn't realize how long they would take to make. Otherwise, I will plan and definitely make these again.
