Preheat oven to 425.
|The dry ingredients are|
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt, cinnamon and nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves and ginger
|Using a pastry cutter or the food processor cut in 6 Tbsp cold butter.(you can see my book ...I was reading The Postmistress!)|
|The wet ingredients are|
3 Tbsp half and half(I used heavy cream substitute)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
I learned from another pinterest post that you can make your own heavy cream! To make 3 Tbsp I used 2 Tbsp of milk and 1 Tbsp of melted butter.
|Fold the wet into the dry to form a ball.|
|Pat into a rectangle. Cut into the shape you desire.Use a wet or greased knife to separate them a bit.The original recipe post shows much nicer pictures!|
Bake for 14-16 minutes.
|Make the first glaze with 1/2 cup icing sugar and 1 Tbsp milk. Whisk together.|
|Brush the scones with the thin icing with a pastry brush. Let icing harden a bit. Just takes a few minutes.|
|Meanwhile make the second icing|
3/4 cup icing sugar
1-2 Tbsp milk
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
a pinch of ground cloves and ginger
|Drizzle over top. Enjoy!|
