Starbucks Double Glazed Pumpkin Scones


You guys. These scones are so so good. I've made scones a few times before and these are by far the best. A moist pumpkin scone is glazed twice. This recipe makes 6 scones, which isn't a ton but it was just right for our house. Basically just enough to last a day, when the scone is fresh.


This copycat recipe comes from Rumbly In My Tumbly. These would be perfect for breakfast with a cup of coffee during the Christmas Season.




Starbucks Double Glazed Pumpkin Scones
Makes 6 scones

Scones Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 9 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 6 Tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 3 Tablespoons half-and-half
  • 1 large egg

Sugar Glaze Ingredients:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons whole milk

Spiced Glaze Ingredients:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Scones Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

2. Lightly grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper.

3. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices in a large mixing bowl.

4. With a fork, pastry knife, or food processor, cut butter into the dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly and no chunks of butter remain. Set aside.

5. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk pumpkin, half and 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 thick 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. Bake for 14–16 minutes until scones turn light brown.

11. Place on wire rack to cool.

Sugar Glaze Directions:

1. Mix the powdered sugar and 2 Tablespoon milk together until smooth.

2. Brush glaze over the top of each cooled scone.


Spiced Glaze Directions:

1. As sugar glaze firms, combine the spiced icing ingredients.

2. Use whisk to drizzle over each scone and allow to dry before serving.

    1. We stored ours in an air tight container, but they only lasted a few hours before they were all eaten.
