RECIPE: Pumpkin Scones with Ginger Molasses Glaze

I'm making a bunch of pumpkin flavored recipes over the next few weeks, because I love pumpkin.  This week I'm sharing a recipe for pumpkin scones.

Pumpkin Scones (adapted from Pinch My Salt)
2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
6 Tablespoons brown sugar
6 Tablespoons cold butter, cut into cubes
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup cold heavy whipping cream

TIP:  This recipe works best if you use a fork while mixing everything together.
  
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, spices and brown sugar; whisk with fork until combined.  Using a fork, press the butter into the flour until it's crumbly.  

Add pumpkin and whipping cream to the bowl and stir with the fork until just combined, it should look like big clumps, do not overwork it.

Pour the mixture onto a lightly floured surface and use your hands to lightly form into a disc.  Fold 3 or 4 times and form into another disc.  Pat into a circle about 1" thick and about 10" across.  Cut into wedges and bake at 400 degrees F for 10-15 minutes until scones are golden and puffed.  

To make the Ginger Molasses Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 Tablespoon molasses
2 Tablespoons milk

Mix everything in a bowl until smooth.  Add more milk 1/2 teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.  Drizzle over cooled scones and serve!

These are so yummy-licious!  The ginger molasses glaze has a spicy bite and very nice contrast with the sweet pumpkin. 

Enjoy!

I am so with you on this one Candi! I am craving the pumpkins in everything right now. I am going to break down and buy myself a pumpkin spiced latte today I think! Can you do a summary post of all your pumpkin recipes when you're all done? I'd love to have them all in one place to refer to and I'll post it on my blog and on my facebook page too. These look great by the way, will try them soon! Thanks for sharing!

I don't like pumpkin pie (textural problems I think) but I love pumpkin in things and I love homemade scones. These look so yummy and your glaze takes them up 10 notches. Can't wait to try them.
