If you’ve been following BrightGreenDoor for a while, you might have noticed that lately my recipes have all included pumpkin. For some reason this fall I’m obsessed with pumpkin, and can’t get enough of it. Scones are also my go-to dessert, so when I tried Starbucks pumpkin spice scones I knew it was a match made in heaven. After some experimenting, I am happy to say that I was able to figure out a recipe that rivals their scones! These copycat Starbucks pumpkin spice scones are a delicious fall treat.
One thing I learned making these scones is that if the dough sticks AT ALL, that you need to add more flour. Once I figured this out, making these was easy.
I also had to flour the rolling pin pretty often, until I was able to roll out a rectangle.
After baking these scones, I like to wait until they’re cooled to glaze them.
Then I let the glaze set before drizzling them with the spiced glaze.
I’ve found that using a fork is the best way to add the drizzle. These scones can be made a day ahead, but they are best served the day that they get glazed. I’ve found that the next day the glaze gets a little bit soggy.
These were the perfect treat to bring to bookclub this month. My boys were also BEGGING me to bring home any leftovers for breakfast the next morning. These are so good that I don’t think there’s anyone who wouldn’t love them!Print
