Pumpkin spice scones


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!

Easy Pumpkin Scones with Icing

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.

Fall flavors are so bold and comforting. I honestly try to incorporate a fall flavor into each day, without overdoing it, otherwise, I will tire of it. Apples, pumpkins, and pecans are ingredients I love and have shared over the years.

This year I am hoping to incorporate figs and beets into some of my recipes so stay tuned for those. If you are not yet subscribing to my newsletter, please consider it. I share a few things that I don’t share here and I email you only once a week. I know how valuable your time is and respect that tremendously!
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.

timesaving tips to streamline recipes

  • 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?
