Make these for breakfast (or dinner, or midnight snack) right now. Kevin’s Famous Scones is one of our most enduring popular recipes on Pretty Prudent (for over five years!). I’ve added a little pumpkin spice to it for the holidays and I can say, ’tis delicious.
These are not your standard dry coffee shop scones. These are moist, scrumptious, and easy to make. Get our easy-peasy pumpkin spice scone recipe after the jump…
The Simplest Pumpkin Spice Scones
2.5 c flour
0.5 c sugar (I like turbinado sugar)
2.5 tsp. baking powder
0.5 tsp salt
6 Tblsp COLD unsalted butter
3/4 c heavy cream
0.5 c pureed pumpkin
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
Mix first 4 ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt) in a stand mixer (or by hand).
Add cold butter (chopped) and mix to a mealy consistency.
Add cream and mix again to combine.
Add pumpkin, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice and mix a final time (don’t overmix, just combine).
Place onto flat surface and form a circle. Sprinkle with more sugar (turbinado if you have), and cut into wedges.
Place wedges on baking sheet (we always use a silpat for easy baking). Bake in 425 degree oven for 15-17 minutes.
