Is that a Starbucks Pumpkin Scone?

October 14, 2009

Oct 09 195Nope!  But it tastes pretty darn close to the Pumpkin Scones we love from Starbucks!

I can’t remember where I came across this recipe, I believe it was from one of those copycat recipe sites. The original recipe has a regular powdered sugar glaze followed by the spiced glaze, but I opted to only glaze them once .   The spiced glaze finishes them off perfectly,  the only thing these Pumpkin Scones are missing it a latte!  

Just like Starbucks Pumpkin Scones

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 7 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 6 tbsp cold butter
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 3 tbsp half and half
  • 1 large egg

Spiced Glaze

  • 1 cup plus 3 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp whole milk
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ginger
  • 1 pinch ground cloves

For the Scones:

Preheat oven to 425 and line a baking sheet with parchment (I love parchment)

Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl.  Cut butter into dry ingredients using a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly and there are no obvious chunks of butter.  Set aside.

In another bowl, mix the pumpkin, half and half and egg.  Fold the wet ingredients into the flour/butter mixture.  Form the dough into  a ball.

Pat the dough out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle 1 inch thick. and about 10X3″.  Using a knife, slice the dough into 4 parts.  Cut the squares diagonally to form 8 triangles.

Bake for 14-16 minutes until scones begin to turn light brown.  Cool on a wire rack. 

Mix glaze ingredients in a small bowl and apply to cooled scones using a pastry brush or spoon.

    I love these at Starbucks! The sad thing is that they’re probably a lot less fattening than their frappuccinos.
