Pumpkin Scones with spiced glaze
Yes, another pumpkin post. This time: pumpkin scones! I absolutely love the color of these scones. I think these might be the prettiest scones I’ve made. And And the icing makes them look pretty fancy.
The original recipe called for two different glazes. Which seems to excite some. But I’m not a fan of icing, frosting, etc. So, two glazes sounded like overkill to me. As a result, I chose to skip the vanilla glaze and only put on the spiced glaze, as it matches and brings out the autumn spices of this scone.
If you love autumn spices, these scones are full of them. It reminds me of the pumpkin lattes from Starbucks. The spices in these scones were actually a little too strong for me. Other than skipping one of the glazes, I made a few minor substitutions for some of the ingredients and I didn’t completely follow the directions. Instead I made these the way I make all my other scones.
