Better than Starbucks Pumpkin Scones

Have you ever had a pumpkin scone from your local overpriced coffee house
{you know the one}
well of course you know the one I put it in the title
well if you have then your in for a treat
 I made pumpkin scones and here is the
 secret recipe

pumpkin scones
2 cups all purpose flour
7 Tablespoons sugar
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground ginger
8 Tablespoons cold butter
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
3 Tablespoons skim milk
1 large egg

1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons milk
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp ground ginger
(orange food coloring)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees
1.line cookie sheet with silpat or parchment paper
2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices in a large bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry knife, until mixture is crumbly with no chunks of butter.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together pumpkin, milk and egg.
4.Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients and form into a ball.
5.Pat out dough onto lightly floured surface and form into a 1 inch thick rectangle
 (about 9 inches long and 3inches wide)
6.Divide into three sections and then make each section into two triangles.
7. bake for 15 minutes scones should begin to turn light brown, let cool on rack
8. make icing by mixing powdered sugar and milk together with spices and apply to scones when cooled. I applied first coat of icing then colored the rest orange and drizzled over the tops.

Those look adorable! We're going to be baking peanut butter cookies right after my 3 year old wakes up from nap.

Happy Weekend!
