Starbucks Pumpkin Scones


Here we go. I've done it! I've created my first pumpkin recipe of the year! Even though it's almost halfway through fall, I think it's better late than never, right?

It's not like I haven't had my fair share of EATING pumpkin treats. I mean, it seems like every time I go to Starbucks, I grab a pumpkin scone along with my coffee. But yesterday, I thought "you know what? Enough is enough." and I set out into my kitchen to make myself my very own pumpkin scone,



Starbucks Pumpkin Scones


I have tried my hand at many Starbucks creations: their oat and fudge bars, their pumpkin spiced latte, their lemon cranberry scones... I'm at Starbucks all the time, so it seems like their food items influence me a lot.

So, on behalf of my first pumpkin recipe of the year, I would like to say: thank you Starbucks. For the inspiration of making these scones.

What you'll need:

Scones:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 egg

Glaze:

  • 1 cup + 3 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk

Drizzle:

  • 1 cup + 3 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • a pinch of ginger
  • a pinch of cloves


Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425˚F. Lightly spray a baking sheet. 
  2. Scones: In a large bowl, mix together the flours, baking powder, salt and spices. In a food processor, pulse together the dry ingredients with the butter until the mixture looks like oatmeal (or fine crumbs).
  3. In a large bowl, beat together the egg, pumpkin and 3 tablespoons of milk. Slowly mix in the flour mixture to form the dough.
  4. Form a ball with the dough, and pat into a 9"x3" square. Place the square on the prepared baking sheet. Use a large knife of a pizza cutter to make 3 equal partitions. Cut those slices diagonally so you have 6 triangular slices of dough.
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes. The scones should be slightly brown. Place on wire racks to cool.
  6. Glaze: In a small bowl, beat together the glaze ingredients. Spread over the cooled scones.
  7. Drizzle: In a small bowl, beat together the drizzle ingredients. Drizzle it over the scones with a spoon.
