{Starbucks Copycat} Pumpkin Scones

Ingredients:


Scones:

2 Cups All-Purpose Flour

1/3 Cup Light Brown Sugar, packed

2 Teaspoons Cinnamon

1/2 Teaspoon Ground Ginger

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1/4 Teaspoon Salt

1/2 Cup Solid Canned Pumpkin

1 Stick Cold Butter, cut into small cubes

3 Tablespoons Milk

1 Large Egg

2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract


White Glaze:

1 Cup Confectioner's Sugar

2 Tablespoons Milk

1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract


Spice Glaze:

1 Cup Confectioners Sugar

1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon

1/4 Teaspoon Ground Ginger

2 Tablespoons Milk

1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract


Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.


In a large bowl mix together your flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, ground ginger, baking powder and salt until evenly combined. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, add in the cold butter and work it into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembled coarse crumbs.



In a large measuring cup or bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, pumpkin and vanilla extract. Pour wet mixture over the dry mixture and mix it just until the mixture comes together. The dough will be soft and slightly sticky.


Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead a few time just until the dough comes together and is no longer sticky. DO NOT over knead or else your scones will come out tough. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a 10x7 inch rectangle about 1 inch thick. Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut the dough directly down the middle vertically, and then horizontally. Then cut from each corner until you have 8 scones. 


Place the scones about a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a baking mat and bake in your pre-heated oven for 10-12 minutes (I cooked mine the full 12).


For each glaze: 

Whisk the confectioner's sugar, vanilla and milk until smooth; set aside.

Whisk the confectioner's sugar, vanilla, milk, cinnamon and ginger until smooth; set aside. 


Once the scones are done, let cool completely. I turned each scone over and carefully dipped the tops in the white glaze (you can spoon it over if you're worried that you might crumble the scones doing it by hand), waiting for it to set just a few minutes, and then I poured the spice glaze into a sandwich bag, snipped off one of the corners with scissors and drizzled it over each scone.


Makes 8 scones.
