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!
I made this recipe 2 ways. As written here and then a gluten-free version using Pamela's baking mix. I made my scones smaller so each batch had 14. Both were excellent!!
I doubled the spices as suggested by Chef Nadindin. Followed many of her suggestions as well. Very tender and moist. Prepped from beginning to end in a food processor. A great treat with a hot cop of coffee or tea! Thanks for posting Rachel-Snachel!
Really tasty! Super easy. I subbed the spices for pumpkin pie spices (I was baking with toddlers, so simpler is better). I also added 1/2 teaspoon of maple flavor to the spice glaze. I get tired of the flavor of straight powdered sugar. I think both glazes together are delicious and wouldn't skip them. They're a tender, light scone with a nice aftertaste, even.
These come out much more of a muffin texture than a scone. Good flavor. The icing makes about 4 times more than you need...cut it down significantly!!!
These scones were delicious, not dry at all. I did bake them on a stone cookie sheet so I think that helped. I also mixed up the spiced glaze using the leftover first glaze by just mixing in the spices. Excellent dipped in my coffee and so easy to make!
Turned out tender and flaky, just like Starbucks! I didn't even glaze them and they were wonderful.
