I'm aiming more for a three and a half than a three, but I can't give halves. I used half white flour and half whole wheat, and the scone itself was good - nice and light. The glaze was disgusting though, it was way too sweet and tasted like icing sugar. I added pumpkin to it, but then it became too runny. The scone could've had more pumpkin in it as well. Nice scone, but needs some tweaking.

Great recipe! However I did tweak it a tad...I had Pumpkin Spice Coffeemate creamer and used a tablespoon of that plus 2 TBS of 2% milk to the scone batter, and then made only the spice glaze which I added a TBS of pumpkin and 3 TBS of the coffeemate again. I also used the "Pumpkin pie spice" throughout to make it easier too. They came out just sweet enough and delicious with the glaze! Will definitely make again!

I just made these delicious scones. 2 Cups of flour was just perfect if you don't over mix it. I will however make them smaller next time. I drizzled and didn't coat them with the white glaze when they were hot and then did the same with the spiced glaze. Very good. Will make them again.

This is one of my favorite desserts to make in the fall. I like to make a double batch and freeze them. Also, I use a cream cheese icing instead of just a regular sugar icing, and I make them bite size.

For anyone who has had a Starbucks scone lately, it is a travesty that this recipe tries to associate itself with it. At Starbucks, I end up with dry, tasteless scones. This was flavorful and tender.

I followed the suggestions of many others and only made the spice glaze (adding vanilla to it) and doubled the spices in the scone recipe.

I'm not sure, but I needed a LOT more flour than 2 cups. I could just tell it was too soft to be able to work with, so, I kept adding flour (chose self-rising flour when I had to add more) in the bowl, then also I kneeded a bit more flour while it was on the cutting board.

I also took one of the suggestions to add pumpkin to the spice glaze. I replaced a tablespoon of milk with a tablespoon of pumpkin for the spice glaze.

Then... it all came out great... yummy scones! You just have to go with your instinct with the dough if you need to add more flour or not.

I actually like these MORE than Starbucks and I love their pumpkin scones! I was missing a few ingredients so I had to substitute vanilla soy milk for the half and half and pumpkin pie filling for the pumpkin puree and all of the spices. I decreased the sugar from 7 Tbsp. to 4 Tbsp. to allow for the sugar in the pumpkin pie filling and they turned out great! Like another reviewer, I used 1 Tbsp. of pumpkin pie filling in the spiced icing to make up for the fact that I had no spices. This icing was so tasty I used it as the over all glaze and drizzled the plain white glaze on top. Next time I am looking forward to being more prepared and following the recipe exactly! Two thumbs WAY up!

I followed the recipe perfectly but when I went to shape them they were very sticky and gummy...I had to throw the dough away!!! From now on, I'll buy these scones from Starbucks and save the disaster for someone else!!
