Well, it’s another #SundaySupper and the theme was squash. I’m going to be honest here… I don’t like squash. Sorry! However, pumpkin is technically a squash and I can bake a ton of tasty treats with that! Just can’t appreciate it savory, go figure.
I had a hard time deciding on what to create. I obviously have scones on my mind as I just made another recipe on Thursday but they went too fast. I’ve been making a lot of pumpkin creations but I haven’t had pumpkin scones in a while. I figured a nice scone with some icing would be perfect. Most scones have egg or egg replacer, I just used a bit of extra pumpkin. These turned out so nice! I was pretty proud to bring these to work, but also a little bummed because I had to share them. I guess I’ll just make more.
Pumpkin Scones with Maple Nutmeg Icing
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp cloves
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 4 Tbsp cold shortening
- 4 Tbsp cold margarine
- 3/4 cup cooked or canned pumpkin
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp almond milk for brushing on the scones, not the mix
Maple Nutmeg Icing Ingredients:
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 Tbsp almond milk
- Pinch of nutmeg
- Preheat the oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Mix the dry ingredients together (down to the brown sugar) in a large mixing bowl.
- Add in the cold shortening and margarine until the mixture gets crumbly.
- Add in pumpkin and other wet ingredients. Combine gently.
- Separate the dough into 2 disks, and cut each into 6 wedges. Separate and place on the baking sheet.
- Brush the tops gently with almond milk.
- Bake until the scones are firm and slightly golden- about 20 minutes. Cool scones on a wire rack and make the icing.
- Adjust the consistency of the icing accordingly. Use only a little liquid at a time. If it gets too thin, add more powdered sugar. Drizzle over cooled scones,
