Difficulty Level Intermediate
Servings 8


Dry ingredients:

  • 9 oz all-purpose flour 2 cups lightly spooned and levelled
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 6 tbsp (3 oz) cold butter

Wet ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup E.D.SMITH® Pure Pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp cream or milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  • In one large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.
  • Grate the cold butter directly into the dry ingredients (I do this by placing the bowl on top of a kitchen scale) then use the whisk to toss it in.
  • In a second bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients. Pour into dry ingredients and gently fold together until 80% combined. Dump onto a sheet of parchment paper and fold it over on itself gently (you aren’t kneading!) a few times to incorporate most of the remaining dry patches. It’s ok if a few floury streaks remain. Pat the dough into an 8″ circle and slice into 8 wedges. Lift onto a parchment lined baking sheet using a floured cake lifter and bake for about 18 minutes, until they feel springy when pressed.
  • If dough is too soft to lift individual scones, bake the whole thing as a circle at 375ºF for about 24 minutes and then pull apart after baking.
  • For Glaze, whisk together: 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 4 tbsp cream or milk, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Drizzle over warm scones. Enjoy!
