Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Glaze

To keep in line with the fall spirit here, I have another pumpkin recipe for you today: Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Glaze! If you are a fan of scones and like pumpkin, well, this is right up your alley then! They are very easy and fast to prepare and since they are not too sweet, they make the perfect breakfast or snack at any time of day. The spiced glaze lends an extra flavor dimension to them with the warmth of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves... Let's celebrate the season! :)
Pumpkin Scones

2 cups all-purpose flour
7 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground ginger
6 tbsp. cold unsalted butter
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
3 tbsp. half-n-half
1 egg

Preheat oven to 425F.
Mix dry ingredients. Add butter and cut it in using a pastry blender or in food processor. Combine wet ingredients and fold them into dry mix until just incorporated. Form into a ball. Do not knead!
* The key to flaky scones is to handle the dough as little as possible.* Pat the dough onto lightly floured surface to about 1 inch thick. Cut in triangles. Bake for about 14-16 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Once cooled, drizzle with Spiced Glaze.

Spiced Glaze
1 cup plus 3 tbsp. powdered sugar
2 tbsp. milk or half-n-half
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
a pinch each of ground ginger and ground cloves

Mix all ingredients together until smooth and drizzle over cooled scones. Enjoy!!! :)
