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.
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.

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.

Cinnamon Scones Glaze
½ cup powdered sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon milk or heavy cream
