Starbucks pumpkin scones

Have you ever tried the pumpkin scones at Starbucks? I didn't even know about them until a couple of years ago, but once I had one for myself, I was done for.

(They are just that heavenly.)

Of course, I immediately googled "pumpkin scones" hoping to find a good recipe! I found this one at (formerly Recipezaar), and it is meant to be an imitation of the Starbucks version, but is way better! In fact, recently I tried one from Starbucks, and was disappointed. It was as hard as a rock! Maybe they were just having an off day...either way, this is the best pumpkin scone recipe!

So this is my wording, but it is the same recipe.

Starbucks Pumpkin Scones

2 cups flour

7 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

6 tablespoon cold butter

1 egg

3 tablespoons half and half

1/2 cup canned pumpkin


1 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp. powdered sugar

2 tablespoons whole milk

Spiced Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar

3 teaspoons powdered sugar

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

pinch cloves

pinch ginger

2 Tbsp. whole milk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. and grease baking sheet or cover with parchment paper.

In a bowl, mix together all dry ingredients. Blend in cold butter with a fork or pastry cutter. In another bowl, whisk egg, half and half,and pumpkin.

Add pumpkin mixture to dry ingredients and combine, just until mixed.

Put onto lightly floured surface and gently pat into a 10 inch circle. Cut into 8 wedges. (The recipe said to pat it into a rectangle and make six scones, but I prefer 8 less enormous scones!)

Put onto prepared baking sheet, and bake for 10-11 minutes.

After they cool for a bit, frost with glaze with a pastry brush. As that glaze sets, drizzle spiced glaze on top next, if desired. (I only use the first glaze~ just personal preference.) You can use a whisk for this thicker glaze or even a spoon to make glazed "zigzags" over the scones. Wait for at least one hour before eating if using spiced glaze, for the icing to set.

Eat and enjoy!

I hope you all are having a great weekend! Thank you so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful night!

Thanks for sharing your recipe! I made these last night for my family and substituded 2 Tblsp 1% milk and 2 Tblsp of plain yogurt for the half and half. They turned out so fluffy so I thought I would pass my information on to you.
