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.
