Maple Pumpkin Scones

All summer, I've been looking forward to my favorite season – “Pumpkin Spice Everything” season!  Now that summer is officially over and my nephews are back in school, it's time to enjoy my favorite food season & what better way to kick it off than with these homemade Maple Pumpkin Scones!  This is a delicious way to enjoy breakfast (along with a pumpkin spiced latte) or a sweet treat in the evening.  These scones are loaded with your favorite pumpkin spice flavor, but deliciously buttery and light at the same time. Not the most healthy treat in the world, but I so deserve it after homeschooling 7 boys this summer! Being down to just my 4 feels like a vacation & deserves something special!

These homemade Maple Pumpkin Scones are so easy to whip all you'll be making them all year - not just during Pumpkin Spice Everything season! Pair them with your favorite Pumpkin Spice latte for a delicious breakfast!

Pumpkin scones are one of our favorite treats during the Fall season.  I use my own homemade pumpkin spice blend, and if possible I will cook down a pumpkin and use for this recipe as well.  If not, I always grab the pure pumpkin puree when on sale and stock up since I know we love these pumpkin scones year round.

Maple Pumpkin Scones

These sound a lot more complicated than they really are when you look at the ingredient list.  You'll need all-purpose flour, pumpkin puree, brown sugar, granulated sugar, maple syrup, butter, milk, egg, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, and salt for the scones.  For the icing, you need powdered sugar, milk, vanilla extract (get the pure stuff, so much better than imitation!), nutmeg, and cinnamon. Most of these are pantry staples that you probably have on hand already!

 

 

 

Before you start mixing up your goodies, preheat the oven to 425° and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.  If you don't have parchment paper, you can spray it with your favorite nonstick spray.

Whisk together pumpkin puree, maple syrup, egg, and milk.
