Servings 8 scones


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 8 tbsp butter frozen
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 3/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg


  • Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat to 425 degrees.
  • Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices in medium bowl.
  • Cut in butter. I prefer to "cut in" my butter by grating it with a cheese grater then working it in with my hands. Your mixture should resemble a coarse meal when done.
  • Whisk sour cream, egg, vanilla extract and pumpkin together in separate bowl.
  • Using a fork, stir wet mixture into your dry mixture until large dough clumps form. The dough will appear very dry, but keep working it with your hands until you can form a large ball.
  • Place dough ball on a lightly floured surface and pat into a rectangle about 3/4" thick. Using a pizza wheel, cut the rectangle in half vertically and horizontally into 4 equal sections. Then cut each section in half diagonally to form 8 triangular pieces.
  • Sprinkle sugar on top of the dough pieces.
  • Place pieces on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake 15-17 minutes.
  • Allow to cool completely before enjoying!
  • For an extra touch of delicious, melt chocolate to drizzle on top.
