The hint of cooler weather makes me crave fall food.  One of the main staples in the pantry is canned pumpkin.  Between muffins, pancakes, bread and these delicious Starbucks Pumpkin Scones, I can’t get enough!  Much to my disappointment, my local grocery store does not have any canned pumpkin on the shelves!  Apparently there was an issue with last year’s harvest, causing a shortage?!  At least that’s the story I was told by the manager and she’s sticking to it.  Mind you, this is also the same store that took Helluva good french onion dip off the shelf because of customer complaints about the name.  Ah, I digress. Back to the point.  This Starbucks Pumpkin Scones Recipe is delicious and perfect for anytime of the year!

Starbucks Pumpkin Scones

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 7 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 6 Tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 3 Tablespoons half-and-half
  • 1 large egg


Sugar Glaze Ingredients:

  •  1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons whole milk

Spiced Glaze Ingredients:

  •  1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons whole milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ginger
  • 1 pinch ground cloves

 Scones Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

2.  Lightly grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper.

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

4.  With a fork, pastry knife, or food processor, cut butter into the dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly and no chunks of butter remain. Set aside.

5.  In a separate mixing bowl, whisk pumpkin, half and half, and egg.

6.  Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Form the dough into a ball.

7.  Pat out dough onto a lightly floured surface and form it into a 1-inch thick rectangle (about 9 inches long and 3 inches wide).

8.  Use a large knife to slice the dough into three equal portions. Cut diagonally to produce 6 triangular slices of dough.

9.  Place on prepared baking sheet from step 2.

10.  Bake for 14–16 minutes until scones turn light brown.

11.  Place on wire rack to cool.


Sugar Glaze directions:

1.  Mix the powdered sugar and 2 Tablespoon milk together until smooth.

2.  Brush glaze over the top of each cooled scone.


Spiced Glaze Directions:

1.  As sugar glaze firms, combine the spiced icing ingredients.

2.  Use whisk to drizzle over each scone and allow to dry before serving.

Makes 6 pumpkin scones.

****I made 12 Starbucks Pumpkin Scones from this same batch because I wanted smaller bite ones BUT they were still good sized.  Go easy on the flour-it burns if there is too much!  I also received this recipe from a friend and do not know where she found the original to provide credit****

    I still want this. Would be great with my morning cup of coffee.

  6. Sounds like a good recipe – and much cheaper than going to Starbucks for scones and coffee. I’ve never made scones before but once the weather gets cooler I will put it on my to do list. Thanks for the recipe.

  7. Looks delish and sounds yummo! Thanks for the tips on the flour!

  8. great looking recipe that I’ll have to try sometime.  I sure hope there isn’t a complete outage of canned pumpkin this year.  Chocolate chip pumpkin muffins are a favorite in my house.
