September Stockpile: Pumpkin Scones

This entry is part 12 of 17 in the series September Stockpile

And we’re back!  Working on filling up the freezer brings us to a recipe I am really excited to share with you.  This recipe for Pumpkin Scones looks like it resembles the pumpkin scones from Starbucks…but I have a feeling they are going to be better!  I am so glad these are going to be in my freezer that I may have to take one out and make it before the baby gets here!  I LOVE pumpkin flavored things, so these will be great for breakfast during this early baby season.  Oh, and if someone happens to stop by for a breakfast, I might make one for them!

September Stockpile Pumpkin Scones

I got the recipe from Sweet Pea’s Kitchen, but I changed the procedure a little bit.  I like to get in there and work when I make scones, but you can also try her procedure if you want to use your mixer.  I also doubled the recipe and substituted pumpkin pie spice for all the different spices she uses.  So here is the modified  single batch recipe:

Pumpkin Scones (adapted from sweetpeaskitchen)

Ingredients:

pumpkin scones prep

  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 c. + 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 6 Tbsp. cold butter, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1/2 c. canned pumpkin
  • 3 Tbsp. half-and-half
  • 1 egg

Procedure:

  1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Add the cold butter and cut in with a pastry cutter until the texture looks like coarse cornmeal.  Make sure all the butter pieces get cut up into small pieces (no larger than small peas).
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together pumpkin, half-and-half, and egg.  Fold into dry ingredients, mixing well and forming into a ball.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, turn out dough and pat down into a 1 inch thick rectangle about 4 inches by 12 inches.  Cut into 3 equal portions and cut an X into each portion to make 12 portions.

To freeze:  Place each portion on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and flash freeze until hard.  Remove from freezer and wrap individually with plastic wrap and store in freezer bag.

To use from frozen: Pre-heat oven to 425 F.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Place frozen, unwrapped scone(s) on cookie sheet and bake for about 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and glaze with the wonderful recipes below:

To Glaze:

Powdered Sugar Glaze:

  • 1 c. + 1 Tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. milk

Mix together until smooth, spread over cooled scones with a pastry brush. Allow to firm.

 

Spiced Glaze:

  • 1 c. + 3 Tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ginger
  • 1 pinch ground cloves

While powdered sugar glaze is firming, combine all ingredients.  Drizzle over each scone and allow icing to dry before serving.

 

Don’t these sound wonderful?!?!

      Congratulations on your expected little one. I really wish I had done this with the first one, but I just did not have the energy to do it…I am starting to question whether I have the energy to do it this time…but we are making progress! Thanks for stopping by and thank you for the recipe!
