How to Make Pumpkin Scones

Looking for a delicious breakfast, or the perfect sized snack recipe? Pumpkin Scones are a tasty and easy choice. I love scones and they are so easy to make. They are crispy on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside with a buttery pumpkin flavor. I like scones at any time of the day and I love how tasty they are with a hot bowl of soup.

This recipe is easy to follow and quite simple to make. With just a few ingredients, you will be enjoying fresh, homemade scones right out of the oven. If you're baking Pumpkin Scones for your family or to share with friends, rest assured they will be a big hit that everyone will love.


I like how moist these scones are inside and the nice crunch on the outside. And I will never make a scone without a bit of glaze (featured below), it just has to be.

Sometimes I like to add a touch of sparkling sugar to my scones!
