Pumpkin Scones

I love scones. A little sweet, but not too indulgent, it is the perfect snack with my morning coffee or post dinner tea. I haven’t found the perfect scone here in Colorado… So I set out to make the scone I was dreaming of… and this is exactly my idea of the perfect scone. Enjoy!

Dry:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Wet:

  • ¼ cup truvia sweetener (or ½ cup brown sugar)
  • ½ cup lightly softened butter
  • ½ cup greek yogurt
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Mix ins:
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • ½ cup crushed walnuts or pecans
  • Glaze:
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Coaching: In a large bowl, using a fork, mix all dry ingredients together, add in wet ingredients, lastly toss the mix ins and stir a few more times. Chill for 15minutes while you preheat the oven to 400 and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the dough in small dollops, about the size of a golf ball, onto the cookie sheet with 2inches between each scone. Bake on middle/top rack for 12minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. While cooking, combine glaze ingredients in a small sauce pan, on low melt the butter while stirring constantly. Turn off burner, but leave the pan on the stove to stay warm until you can pour over scones once they come out of the oven. Cool glazed scones for 10minutes before tasting!
