I thought these were fantastic! I made a few adjustments since it is Thanksgiving...in place of the half-n-half, I used eggnog, and I didn't make the white icing either. I used eggnog in the spiced icing as well...AWESOME!

The scone itself very good. Moist, flavorful. I needed to add 2 heaping tablespoons more of flour to get it to not be entirely too sticky.

The icing as written is nasty and ruins the scone entirely. I even added vanilla. It tastes like straight up confectioner's sugar and next time I won't be making the icing at all.

Love them! I made them for a church breakfast over a year ago and the requests have not stopped yet. When I'm in a hurry, I skip the plain glaze and only use the spiced one - they're still just as tasty.

I just made these and they were really good! My first time making them. I did not add the spice glaze but were very good without!

Amazing! Better than any crap they serve at Sbucks. I added an extra tablespoon of butter (butter is good!) vanilla and some Molasses. I also chilled the cut scones in freezer while my oven preheated. These are so light and fluffy! Renewed my faith in homemade scones. I didn't bother with the glaze. Make these scones and be happy!

Very good flavor but not the least scone-like except in shape. In comparing recipes I found the huge difference is the amount of leaveners-- most scone recipes with similar amounts of flour used 1.5 - 2.25 total teaspoons. <br/>Don't try to store iced in airtight container, they became very wet!

My husband was on a pumpkin scone kick so I was making them every week for him he loved these more than the Starbucks ones!

These are fabulous! They are moist, perfectly sweet and extremely flavorful from the both glazes. Have made them twice and will make them again.

Sooo good! I've never had a Starbuck's pumpkin scone, but these are delicious! My changes were to sub 2 T. of milk mixed with 1 T of sour cream for the half & half, doubled the spices, cut the scones in eighths and only made half of the glaze recipe. I had to bake mine a bit longer. I had one as an afternoon snack, but can't wait to have one with coffee in the morning. Thanks for sharing this keeper recipe!
