Everyone is making pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING for Fall this year, so here is my contribution. A big THANK YOU to Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures for this recipe that makes A LOT of scones!
I wasn’t sure how thick the dough should be after spreading out in the pan – I made it about one-inch thick. During baking they rose to about two-inches thick.
If you love pumpkin, you will love these scones!
- 1 1/2 cups brown rice flour
- 1 1/2 cups sorghum flour
- 1 cup potato starch
- 1/2 cup tapioca starch
- 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1/4 teaspoon cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk (I used almond milk)
- One 15-ounce can pumpkin
- 2 cups powder sugar
- 4-5 tablespoons milk (I used almond milk)
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Stir together the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl: brown rice flour, sorghum flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, xanthan gum, cloves, ginger, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Cut the butter into the dry ingredients until butter is small pieces and crumbly.
In another bowl mix pumpkin, eggs, and milk until thoroughly combined (I used a fork, not an electric mixer).
Slowly stir this mixture into the butter/flour mix until completely combined. Dough will be thick and sticky.
Press dough onto greased cookie sheet. I used parchment paper, but it is not required. I used some Cup4Cup gluten free flour mix on top so it would be easier to press out. This recipe made so much dough it was pressed out to the edges of the pan.
Cut dough into wedges or squares.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. The dough was too sticky to separate the slices, so I baked it for the 15 minutes first, then separated the slices with a knife, then cooked for another 5 minutes.
Mix together glaze ingredients in a small bowl while the scones are baking.
Remove scones from oven and drizzle about half of the glaze across top.
Let scones cool completely, then drizzle with the rest of the glaze. If you do the glaze in two steps, the first time it soaks into the hot scones and the second application will be more like icing.
