Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Scones

Pumpkin Scones

Mmm, Starbucks pumpkin scones. You know what’s even better? Having a copycat version, making them yourself, and realizing they are fresher, moister, and in general mo’ better than what you can buy. Score!

Scone Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 stick unsalted, cold butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 tbsp. half and half
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

Sugar Glaze Ingredients:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp. milk

Spice Sugar Glaze Ingredients:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. cloves
  • 1/4 tsp. ginger
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp. milk


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.

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

In a food processor, cut butter into dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk pumpkin, half and half, and egg. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients and form into a ball.

On a lightly floured surface, pat out dough and form into a 1-inch thick rectangle (about 9 inches long and 3 inches wide). Using a pizza cutter, slice the dough into three equal portions. Cut diagonally to produce 6 triangular slices of dough. Place on prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 14-16 minutes until scones are light brown. Place on wire rack to cool.

Prepare sugar glaze and brush over the top of each cooled scone. As sugar glaze firms, prepare spice glaze and drizzle over each scone.
