Pumpkin Scones with Maple Glaze

These Pumpkin Scones with Maple Glaze are the perfect fall treat! So easy to make and so delicious!

I seriously can’t get enough of all the pumpkin flavoured treats this time of year! I am obsessed with them all and forever looking for more ways to work pumpkin-y goodness into everything I am making these days.

Today, I am excited to share with you these delicious pumpkin scones! Pureed pumpkin and pumpkin spice come together to flavour these delicious treats. The maple glaze is an added touch that make these absolutely perfect! I am in love, you guys!

I love a good scone and love to switch up the flavours with them. They are so fun to work with because there are so many possibilities! I’ve shared a few of my favourites on the site already but cannot believe that I have yet to share this one! I don’t know how that’s happened cause pumpkin flavoured everything is always on the menu in the Fall and these scones are popular around here! I am rectifying that now!

If you love pumpkin flavoured treats, I am sure you will love these! They give off a lovely pumpkin flavour but are not too overpowering so if you are serving these up to friends who may not be huge pumpkin lovers (I mean, you gotta ask yourself if these are friends worth keeping :P), I am sure they will still enjoy these!

How to make Pumpkin Scones with Maple Glaze

Like my other scone recipes (which I use the same base recipe for), these are super easy to make. I whip them up in my food processor and then all that’s left is to shape, cut and bake them up. Oh and drizzle them with a yummy glaze! Can’t forget that! If you don’t have a food processor, I have also included steps to make these without.

To make these scones, you will need:

Pumpkin Scones

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon each cinnamon and pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Maple Glaze

  • 1 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk

Directions

Preheat oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a food processor, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and salt. Pulse a few time to mix it thoroughly. Add the butter and pulse until it forms a coarse meal. (If you do not have a food processor, simply stir the dry ingredients in a large bowl and use a pastry cutter or two butter knives to work the butter in until it forms a coarse meal.)

In a small bowl, whisk the egg, milk, pumpkin puree, and yogurt together. Add it to the flour mixture and pulse until it combines into a wet but crumbly dough.

Transfer everything onto a clean, floured surface. It will be clumpy at this point. Using your hands, work the dough to help bring it together and shape it into a 8 inch disc.

Cut the dough into 8 wedges and transfer onto the baking sheet, leaving at least an inch between wedges. Brush each scone with milk and sprinkle with some sugar. Bake for 15-16 minutes or until the scones begin to turn a nice golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes.

In a bowl, add the confectioners sugar, maple syrup and milk. Stir to form the glaze. Drizzle the glaze over the scones. Enjoy!

I hope that you love these scones! Bon appetit!
