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.

HOLY COW is all I can say!!! Followed the recipe as is and my end results were tender melt in your mouth scones.

Add # more tablespoons of sugar to the since they were a bit tart/bland. If not sprinkle some sugar on top of the frosting after you frosted to make it a hint sweeter. Otherwise they were awesome.

I made these two days ago and then made a second batch. I added extra pumpkin and flour, and then only used the spiced glaze. These were a huge hit. I will definitely make these again. They are so tasty! Thank you for sharing.

At least double the spices. Ive used 1 T. Pumpkin pie spice and it wasnt too much. Also baking powder needs reduced. I use 2 1/2 t. For icing, I sub in my chai blend and use a lot more than they do here. Good recipe. Gave it 4 stars mainly because of lack of spices.

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!
