Pumpkin Scones & Pumpkin Butter

Hello, hello! It has been a very long time since my last post. Today I'm
here with a quick one that I just had to share. I don't know about you, but this
time of year I crave all things pumpkin.
 I LOVE pumpkin anything!

Pumpkin Scones
(recipe adapted from several Starbucks copycat recipes)
makes 1 dozen

For the scones:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbs baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp all spice
  • 1/4 ground cloves 
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pie filling) 
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 milk 
  • 1 egg
For the glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 - 2 tbs milk 
For the cinnamon drizzle:
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon, or to taste
  • 1 - 2 tbs milk 
Instructions-
  For the scones:
  1. Preheat the oven to 425F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly flour. 
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and spices in a large bowl. Use a pastry blender or fork to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly and no large chunks of butter are obvious. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together the pumpkin, milk, sugar and egg. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients with a fork, and form the dough into a ball.
  4. Pat out dough onto a lightly floured surface and form it into a 1-inch thick rectangle about 3 times as long as wide. Use a large knife or a pizza cutter to slice the dough twice through the width, making three equal portions. Cut each of the portions in an X pattern (four pieces) so you end up with 12 triangular slices of dough. 
  5. Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 14–16 minutes. Scones should begin to turn light brown. Place on wire rack to cool.
For the glaze:
  1. Mix the powdered sugar and 2 tbsp milk together until smooth. 
  2. When scones are cool, use a brush to spread the glaze over the top of each scone.
For the cinnamon drizzle:
  1. While the powdered sugar glaze is firming, combine all of the ingredients for the spiced icing. Drizzle over each scone and allow the icing to dry before serving. If you can wait that long! 
Tips: 
  • For the 1/3 cup of sugar I filled the measuring cup about 2/3 full with brown sugar and topped it off with white. I find brown sugar gives a softer texture than white sugar. 
  • The original recipes call for heavy cream which I substituted with milk. 
  • While mixing the cinnamon drizzle don't add all the milk at once. Mix until you get a firmer consistency than you got for the glaze. You want it to sit on top of the glaze, not run all over. 
  • For easy clean up use a baggie and snip off the corner for easy drizzling. 
Now for the pumpkin butter. This is by no means an 'exact' recipe. I really didn't measure anything. My best advice when making this is - taste as you go. If you like it a bit sweeter, add more sugar. If you like it spicier (like me) add more spice. It is super easy to make!

Pumpkin Butter
  • 1 - 2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 1 - 2 cups apple juice, apple cider or water
  • 1/2 - 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp pumpkin spice  
  1. Add all ingredients to a pot. Bring to a gentle boil, turn heat down to low and simmer for an hour, give or take.
  2. Stir every ten minutes or so. 
  3. Once the 'butter' has reduced to a jam like consistency it's done. 
Tips:
  • Make sure to put a splatter guard over your pot or your stove will be covered in pumpkin polka dots when you're done!
  • Store butter in a jar or container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
  •  Pumpkin butter is delicious on lots of things - toast, muffins, pancakes, etc. Or for a cooler treat try added a couple heaping tablespoons to your favorite vanilla yogurt and top with crushed graham crackers. Pumpkin pie yogurt! Soo good! 

Thank you soo much for joining me today! I know I've been MIA forever, but I'm getting back to blogging so come back soon!
