Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices in a large bowl.
2
To the dry ingredients, begin grating the butter. Stir to ensure that all butter is coated with the flour mixture.
3
In a new bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, half and half and egg. When ready, use a spatula to fold the pumpkin mixture into the dry ingredients.
4
Sprinkle a clean surface with flour. Knead dough 4-5 times, then divide in half and form each dough ball into a 1/2 in thick round. Slice each into 8 pieces to form your scones.
5
Place on 2 baking sheets that pave been lined with parchment. Bake for 10-14 minutes, just until the tops begin to brown. Cool on rack.
6
GLAZE: Whisk powdered sugar and milk together. Brush on each scone and let set.
7
SPICE GLAZE: Whisk together powdered sugar, milk and spices. This one you will want to drizzle - not brush - over the top of each scone. Allow to set.

    Should the 6 TBS of frozen bread dough be frozen butter?

    This sounds delicious. I was curious why you use frozen butter. I don't have any experience making scones.

    These are a great creation from Sweetpea's Kitchen, I am actually going to try them out myself. I found them on the her blog and I saw that they were on here too! Can't wait to try them! You took a great photo of them! Makes me want to make them right now!

    I believe the purpose of the frozen butter is to help keep them flaky. People also use cold or frozen butter in pie crusts for that reason as well.

    Annamaria- I love this recipe, I am actually going to be making a batch in the morning to have with my coffee. Can't wait.
