  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon pumpkin spice seasoning
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted butter (super cold)
  • cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon sugar to sprinkle on top ( I used a coarse sugar)
  • ½ cup your favorite icing optional


  • Preheat the oven 400 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick cooking spray.
  • Mix all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon powder, pumpkin spice mix, and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl
  • Next cut the butter into the flour by rubbing it between your thumbs and fingers and rub until all the butter is incorporated into the flour mixture. It will look similar to lumpy sand.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together heavy cream, pumpkin puree, egg, and vanilla extract.
  • Pour it into the flour and butter mixture and knead it with your hands, the mixture will resemble a lightly sticky dough.
  • Dust a work surface with flour and then put the dough on the surface, pat the dough, and shape it in a circle.
  • Then use a knife divide the dough into eight equal wedges.
  • Transfer the scones onto your baking tray and sprinkle on sugar.
  • Bake the scones for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven once done and allow it to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Optional: drizzle 1 tablespoon of icing over each scone and serve after the glaze has set about 30 minutes.


Tip: You want the dough to be the perfect mix of sticky and crumbly. Yes, it may take some trial and error to get there.
