Wonderful on a cold spring day in Mn, they were perfect, thought of making Blueberry Lemon scones then seen this recipe...wish I would have doubled it...they are moist, and delicious...I did use 1/2 tsp of Pumpkin pie spice, about 1/4 tsp of ginger...and of course 1 tsp cinnamon instead of the called for spices.....made a maple flavored glaze with pd sugar, maple flavoring, and cream...so can not comment on the glaze...perfect will use this recipe again especially for a fall tea...thank you
This is a very easy to throw together recipe!! I used the food processor for the dry ingredients (adding butter was a breeze) then I used the KA with the dough hook to incorporate the wet and dry. Very quick! These are treats to take to work this morning, Thank you for posting! (I doubled the recipe and make small triangles..at least 2 dozen great for a crowd!)
Wow!! Really, really delicious! My kids were worried when they saw me making these instead of pancakes, but they all loved them too. Great, light, fluffy, biscuity texture! One of my daughters called them, "decadent". Perfect amount of non-sweet bread to sweet glaze. I had some leftover pumpkin in the freezer from when I made pumpkin bread earlier in the season, and this was perfect to use it up. I don't usually change recipes, but because I didn't have cloves (and I wanted them TODAY), I used 1 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice, and added 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg to that. In the end, I don't know if that means I was doubling the spices (like some people suggested) or not, but the flavor was lovely. As others suggested, I didn't make the white glaze. Even the spice glaze tasted too powdered sugary to me on its own, so I added a little vanilla and melted butter (to taste) just to give it some more dimension. Turned out delicious. Thanks so much for this yummy recipe. I've only had the Starbuck's version once, so I didn't have much to go by. But I'd be proud to serve these to anyone.
Wonderful! Everyone loved these! I went ahead and used all of the spiced glaze which, on top of the white glaze, was too much icing for my tastes. Next time I'd probably make half the spiced glaze and use as a drizzle. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I made these for Thanksgiving morning and they were excellent! I doubled the spices in the scone and added pumpkin pie spice in the glaze as well. Wow, were they good!
Wonderful recipe. I did double the spices in the scone recipe itself and I only used the spicy glaze. I will make these again!! Very yummy, great texture and simple to whip together.
Agree that you definitely have to add more flour when shaping the dough or you'll never get it off your hands! Tasty...not as pumpkin flavored as Starbucks. I'm going to cut them smaller next time like other reviewers. This was my first time making scones and they're pretty good:)
fantastic! I used the Coffemate Gingerbread latte for the cream, and in the powdered sugar icing drizzle. Skipped making the spice glaze because my family was gobbling them up before I could make them
My guests at our B & B rave about these scones. I did however change the recipe a bit. I added 1/2 cinnamon chips, increased the half-and-half to 1/4 cup and left off the glazes.
