Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice seasoning
  • 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) butter, chilled
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • Frosting

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • milk, as needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple extract (you can sub vanilla extract in a pinch)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet or two small baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly grease with cooking spray.
  • To make the dough for the scones, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice together.
  • Dice the butter into small cubes. Add to dry ingredients. Cut butter into the dry ingredients using a fork or a pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the pumpkin puree, milk, egg and vanilla. Stir into the flour and butter mixture until a soft dough forms. Work in the chocolate chips. Transfer the dough to a well-floured surface and knead for 20-30 seconds until it comes together.
  • Shape the dough into a 12-inch circle. Cut the the circle into 8 equal size triangles. Place on prepared baking sheet (not touching each other) and bake for 10-15 minutes until browned.
  • While scones are baking, prepare the frosting. Cream together butter, cream cheese, vanilla, and maple extract. Add powdered sugar and mix well. Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until mixture is smooth and pourable. Spread or pour over cooled scones. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
