Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Scones

Oh my word this recipe is good.

And I mean, GOOOOOD! (Did you see I used all of the type-features there. Yep. That's how good it is.)

Flaky, buttery, pumpkiny.... YUM!

I don't even want to taint this recipe with my witty banter.

Just make these.

Scone Dough:
(makes 6 scones)

2 cups all-purpose flour
7 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
6 Tablespoons cold butter, cubed
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
3 Tablespoons pumpkin pie creamer
1 large egg

1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons whole milk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices. Whisk together. Using your hands or a pastry fork, cut butter into dry ingredients until crumbly. Some large pieces of butter are OK here!
In a medium bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, creamer and egg. Fold pumpkin mixture into dry mixture until combined. Work with hands to form into a ball.
Lightly flour your surface and pat out dough into a 1-inch thick rectangle. This is about 9 inches long and 3 inches wide. Slice the dough into 6 even triangles.
Place on prepared sheet and bake for 14 minutes or until golden brown on tops and edges.
Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.

Combine glaze ingredients and brush on to cooled scones.

Eat and enjoy these buttery, flaky, pumpkin scones.

Good riddance to dry scones!!


  1. Sounds fantastic and no exotic ingredients!!!! I love when I look at a recipe and I have everything to make it in my cabinet at that exact moment!!

  2. I just made this recipe today! The only difference is that I made an additional glaze that had pumpkin and spices in it! I loved these and am glad you did too!

    Am now following your blog!

    I would love it if you would join our party, Foodie Friends Friday and bring a couple of your great recipes!
