Hello & Happy Fall! It is feeling a little like it too. It is only in the evenings, but I definitely can feel that cool fall breeze at night. When I hear the leaves rustling on the sidewalk, it gets me a little giddy for the season. It also reminds me of some of the scary movies I used to watch when I was younger.
Does it feel like fall where you are yet? Are you seeing changing leaves? We do not get that so much here, but I like to decorate so it feels like fall.
Why This Recipe?
Today’s easy and delicious pumpkin scones recipe results in sweet flaky scones that are full of fall flavors. To me, these homemade scones taste better than the ones you find at the coffee shop.
It is a great way to used canned pumpkin and incorporates the taste of pumpkin spice into your life and they are so good!
I am a big scones fan because this time of year, I love a little sweet treat (that isn’t too sweet) to go with my hot tea or cocoa. You may remember my tea party chocolate chip scones from a couple of years ago.
This weekend I was able to get together with friends for a fun tea party. I highly suggest gathering your tribe together and having a potluck tea. It is a great way to enjoy the season!
Scones are easy to make and I love making the slices from the dough.
Just bake them in the oven for a little while.
Then add a little icing. I like to keep the icing light, but you can make it a little thicker if you want. Before you know it you have a delicious scone! These make a nice side item for a brunch or breakfast, but it can also be a dessert or lunch box treat.
They are perfect and lovely with a bit of icing.
Scone Icing Ideas:
You can also opt to make a little maple icing by adding maple syrup in place of the milk. It will make the scone a little sweeter, but it changes the flavor a bit.
Another nice topping for scones is a chocolate drizzle. Just melt some chocolate chips with butter and drizzle away! Chocolate pretty much works on any sweet flavor scone.
- Be sure to use pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling for this recipe.
- Using a pastry cutter will help you work with the dough faster.
- Using canned pumpkin will save you lots of time and it tastes treat, but you can use homemade pumpkin puree too.
- You can use canned frosting and add a little milk to it so that it is a bit thinner, and it will work just fine. Just be sure to let the scones cool to room temperature before icing.
- This recipe is a perfect way to use leftover canned pumpkin this fall. It only uses about half a can so it is perfect.
- Store cooled scones in plastic wrap.
I hoped you love this fun and easy scone recipe! Why not throw a tea party with your girls and enjoy the moments together?

mmm.. that cinnamon glaze! Count me in. I love canned pumpkin and I love that you can actually buy it and use it year-round. I don't know why we don't more! We do keep it around because it's good for the dogs when they're sick.
Oh, those pumpkin scones look so good!
These look scrumptious. I love anything pumpkin! I'l be featuring these tonight at Merry Monday.
Such a yummy recipe for a perfect fall treat! This recipe is being Featured at the Merry Monday party going on now! Can't wait to see what you are sharing with us this week!
Thank you so much!
What a great recipe! I'm not much of a baker and even I managed to make these look and taste good! Mine turned out almost cake-like in consistency, but I think I just added a little too much milk. They're not too sweet, which my sugar-averse boyfriend appreciates (I only put the cinnamon icing on half the scones) but they still taste like a fall treat!
Yay! Thank you for rating. Glad you loved it!
Fairly easy to make and they came out looking just like the pictures. They are tasty and not overly sweet. I’m sure I will make this recipe again.
Thank you for taking the time to comment and glad you enjoyed them Colleen!
Looks like a delicious recipe! I’m about to make it. Is it 3/4 cup of butter? Our sticks only come in 1lb blocks so I’m trying to figure that out. Thank you in advance!
Thanks for your question! 3/4 sticks is 6 tablespoons.
These look so delicious! Do you know if they freeze well after baked?
I have not tried freezing them. but yes I think you could freeze them for a month or two.

Made these for my husband to take to work we love fall flavors and they did not disappoint. They were so easy to make and so tasty thanks.
So glad to hear. Thank you so much for letting me know! Happy Thanksgiving!
These pumpkin scones look deep! Can't wait to make some. ☺️
I meant delicious.
is it ok if i ues regular suger and not white??
Hi Nicky, Yes it is.
Ok, well now I have to ask, based on one of the comments. What is the difference between white sugar and regular sugar? I’m looking forward to making these! Thank you!
Joani, I refer to regular sugar as white sugar. Thanks for stopping by.
I made these today for Canadian thanksgiving weekend, the look and smell delicious!
Awesome and happy Thanksgiving Andrea!
I never rate recipes, but this is soooooo good. I did add chocolate chips because I have a problem, but even without I'm sure it's just as yummy!
Thank you so much - I really appreciate you taking the time to rate.
What should the diameter of the dough circle be?
About 9" or so, about the size of a pie.
Can you replace the white flour with almond flour or wheat flour?
Yes to wheat flour, but I have not tried to use almond flour.
These are delicious & easy! I’m wondering if I can double the recipe and have them turn out ok, or is it one where I’d be better off making two separate batches?
I would make them in two batches so it is easier to manage the dough. Thank you for rating my recipe! 🙂
