Mini Pumpkin Scones
I love pumpkin, so this is my favorite time of year... and out come the pumpkin recipes. These are great in the morning with coffee. Or anytime for that matter. I found this recipe on takeamegabite.com. Great recipe!
Hope you all enjoy these as much as I do.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices in a large bowl.
To the dry ingredients, begin grating the butter. Stir to ensure that all butter is coated with the flour mixture.
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.
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.
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.
GLAZE: Whisk powdered sugar and milk together. Brush on each scone and let set.
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.
