For the Pumpkin Glaze

15% off with the code- JENNSWWJOURNEY

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin puree

  • 2 tablespoons half & half

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, half & half, egg, and vanilla; set it aside.

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar substitute, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, and salt until combined. Cut the butter into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter or your hands until you get pea-size pieces. Make a hole in the center of the flour mixture to create a well. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the center of the well and stir until the dough just starts to come together.

  • Dust the counter lightly with flour and place the dough onto the surface. Gently knead the dough a few times until it's formed together. Don't over-work the dough. Shape the dough into a circle about 1 inch thick. Cut the dough into eight equal wedges. Place them on the baking sheet, leaving spaces in between them.

  • Bake for 13-16 minutes until golden brown. Allow the scones to cool right on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Make the White Glaze

  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of the half & half until there are no lumps. The glaze should be on the thicker side but still pourable; you can add in a little more heavy cream if it's too thick.

  • Spoon the glaze over the surface of each scone and allow the glaze to set for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Make the Pumpkin Glaze

  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Mix in the puree and half & half, stir until the glaze is lump-free.

  • Pour the glaze into a ziptoc bag and cut a small tip off the bottom of the bag. Drizzle the glaze back and forward over the scones. Allow the glaze to set for at least 15 minutes until it sets.

  • Serve and enjoy!
