Stop what you’re doing. This is important.
Before pumpkin-flavored things are off limits and it’s on to peppermint and eggnog, you have to make these Pumpkin Scones. OMG. They are delicious and perfect with a cup of coffee in the morning. And not to mention pretty easy to make! Why spend 5 bucks at Starbucks on one of these babies when you can make them at home?
The recipe is easy to follow: just mix up your flours and spices, then add cold cubes of butter and mix until you have coarse, cornmeal-type of texture. Mix up your egg, pumpkin puree, and some milk (it called for half and half but I didn’t have any so I just added half the amount of milk). This is where it gets a big messy… just make sure your hands and kitchen surfaces are covered in flour! The dough is a tad (and I mean a lot) sticky. Form the dough into a ball then pat out into a rough rectangle. Cut into triangle shapes, about 12 pieces. My scones were not perfectly shaped, but that’s why I think they were so cute!
Fact: homemade is better. Always.
Whip up your glazes with some powdered sugar, and smother the tops with a good amount of each. The recipe called for just a regular glaze and then a spiced glaze and you might think this is superfluous, but let me tell you, they are totally necessary. Don’t skimp, or I’ll find you.

Make them! For me?
Enjoy this fabulous Fall day, friends!
