Starbucks Pumkin Scones

Starbucks Pumpkin Scones

Here is it as written. I think that I usually use an entire small can of pumpkin so that would be quadrupling it. And I'm still lucky to have any the next day. This is the one that I am currently using. I do have a second one, just need to find it.

2 cups all-purpose flour
7 Tablespoons sugar(this is the way it's written)
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (I omit this)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 ground nutmeg
1/4 ground cloves
1/4 ground ginger
6 Tablespoons cold butter
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
3 Tablespoons half and half (I just use milk)
1 large egg

Sugar Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon powdered sugar (again it's written like this)
2 Tablespoons milk

Spiced Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons milk
1/4 ground cinnamon
1/8 ground nutmeg
1 pinch ground ginger
1 pinch ground cloves

1. preheat oven to 425 degrees F
2. Lightly grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper
3. combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices in a large mixing bowl.
4. with a fork, pastry knife, or food processor cut the butter into the dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly and no chunks of butter remain. Set aside.
5. in a seperate mixing bowl wisk pumpkin, half & half, and egg.
6. fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients. form the dough into a ball.
7. pat out dough onto a lightly floured surface and form it into a 1-inch think rectangle(about 9 inches long and 3 inches wide)
8. use a large knife to slice the dough into three equal portions. Cut diagonally to produce 6 triangular slices of dough.
9. place on prepared baking sheet from step 2
10. Back for 14-16 minutes until scones turn light brown
11 place on wire rack to cool

Sugar Glaze directions
1. mix the powdered sugar 2 Tablespoons milk together until smooth
2. Brush glaze over the top of each cooled scone.

Spiced Glazed
1. make up the sugar glaze and as it firms add in the spices, mix together until smooth
2. use whisk to drizzle over scones.

I have tried the plane glaze it was ok, I might add a touch of vanilla next time. As to getting these into that 9x3 shape and making triangles, nope I'm lucky to get it into what ever shape, use a pizza cutter and we have scones. They are usually ugly but super tasty.

Ugly but good....beauty isn't everything you know :)

My large cans pumpkin yield 3 cups...I could go wild with these! I would definitely add vanilla or maybe almond...or even maple extract...to the plain glaze. And maybe a half Tbs of melted butter, too. I don't like plain powdered sugar icing :( It needs a boost. Even a thinned cream cheese icing would be good drizzled over...

Ooooh, the possibilities!!!!
