Pumpkin Scones with Two Glazes: Recipe #258

Everyone except me likes pumpkin spice. (At least in our house.) So once a year I buy the necessary cans of pumpkin and the house turns into a pumpkin spice factory. These dairy-free pumpkin scones are a special treat that are very popular around here. The kids especially love the two kinds of glaze you get to drizzle over top. Thanks to Chungah for inspiration!

I hope you enjoy this recipe, which is part of our 1,000 Food Experiments to create sustainable meals for our family and yours.

Directions for Pumpkin Scones with Icing

1. In a large bowl, mix the flours, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. In a blender, mix the margarine, pumpkin, soy milk, egg, and vanilla and blend to combine well.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture and stir together with a wooden spoon to form a soft dough. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough briefly until it just comes together.

Cut the dough into 7 large or 14 small pieces, shape them into whatever scone shapes you like (circles, triangles, random shapes) and arrange them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Bake at 400F for 10-12 minutes, until they’re browned on the bottom and a toothpick inserted into the middle of a scone comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

2. In two small bowls, mix the white and spiced glaze ingredients to make the two glazes. Drizzle the icings over your cooled pumpkin scones and enjoy your very own fancy cafe breakfast! ❤️🤗
