Pumpkin Scones with Maple Glaze & Pecans


I have a fall teatime treat for you~ Pumpkin Scones with Maple Glaze and Pecans!


I found this adorable pumpkin teapot with sculpted leaves by Grace’s Teaware at my favorite pumpkin patch, HomeGoods, for $12.99 ;)


This pumpkin scone recipe uses 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree so it’s a great way to use leftover canned pumpkin from another recipe.  You can bake them and enjoy them fresh the oven; make ahead and reheat, then glaze them; or freeze them unbaked. They can go directly from the freezer to the oven with just a few extra minutes of baking time.


Pumpkin Scones with Maple Glaze & Pecans,

recipe adapted from Southern Lady Magazine

Make 8 Servings


2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, diced

1/2 cup pumpkin puree (I used Libby’s)

3 tablespoons half and half

1 large egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/3 cup chopped pecans



Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a small bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, egg, half and half, and vanilla. Set aside.

In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice. Pulse a few times to combine.

Cut cold butter into 1/2-inch chunks. Add to food processor and pulse until the mixture is crumbly with pea-size chunks of butter. Add pumpkin mixture and pulse just until the mixture comes together. The dough will be very sticky.

(If you don’t have a food processor, use a pastry cutter to cut butter into flour mixture until crumbly. Add pumpkin mixture stirring until combined.)

Turn dough out onto floured surface and dust the top with more flour. Gently knead the dough until it comes together and pat into 8-inch circle. If dough is still too sticky to work with add some additional flour.

Using a knife dusted with flour, slice each circle into 8 wedges. Place the wedges on the prepared baking sheet. Place individual scones in freezer to firm up, then wrap each individually well and return to freezer to bake from frozen if desired.

Bake until golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Drizzle with glaze and sprinkle with toasted pecans.


Maple Glaze

1 cup confectioners’ sugar

5 teaspoons milk or half and half

1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1/4 teaspoon maple extract

Whisk all of the ingredients together in a small bowl to make thin glaze. Use immediately.


To toast pecans, place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet in a preheated 350° oven until they become aromatic, 5 – 10 minutes, watching carefully so they don’t burn. Remove from baking sheet and allow to cool.

    That looks Heavenly! Your teapot is adorable too. I haven’t been to HomeGoods in months (self imposed exile) and I need to get back in and check out what I can find for Thanksgiving tableware before it’s all gone.

    Mary, scones are a favorite for me and with the flavor of pumpkin I will be rushing to get these in the oven! The pumpkin teapot is adorable! I live 60 miles away from the nearest HomeGoods, probably a good thing! Happy Wednesday, Pam @ Everyday Living

    My daughter wants me to make these scones for her. They look delicious, and I’m pinning the recipe immediately! I really love the adorable pumpkin teapot. Our oldest daughter was born in October, and she’s always loved all things pumpkin. I’m going to try to find her a teapot at Home Goods.

    Yummy! I’m having 15 of my friends to our lakehome Thursday and will make these for the girls to have for breakfast with coffee on the porch🎃 I absolutely love Homegoods and go weekly. We have so much in common and I love your blog!

    We finally have a Homegoods in our area about 25 minutes away. My funds have been stretched in order to pay for health insurance so not able to visit the store and be tempted. I love scones will have to try the recipe.

    Ooh Mary, I’m swooning not only over your scones (wish I had one with my tea this morning), but over your darling teapot and those dishes….sigh! Looks like a trip to HomeGoods is in my near future! I also have some leftover pumpkin in my freezer to use in those scones…yum!

    Yummy fall treat Mary! I laughed when I read the part about using leftover pumpkin, that seems to be the most worrisome part of fall, so much so that the can I recently bought was labeled “freeze leftovers in a proper container.” So now we know! Love your sweet white pumpkin teapot, HG is my favorite pumpkin patch too :)

    Your teapot reminded me that I have a cute Fitz and Floyd pumpkin teapot in my cupboard. I need to get that out to at least display this time of year! Love the scones, thank you for the recipe.

    Where do you store all of your dishes, linens, flatware and glassware? I love going to Homegoods and antique stores and estate sales but have no more room in my house. At least if I want to move around and live in it. I have a five drawer chest full of cloth napkins, napkin rings and table runners that is almost bursting it is so full. I guess it is time to start passing some of these lovely things on but it is hard for me to give them up.

    I’m not sure which I like better…those delicious sounding scones, the yummy looking maple glaze or that DARLING TEAPOT!!! Oh & don’t forget the dishes!! You’re killing me, Mary…I want to run out & purchase every single item you share. *sigh*

    Hi Mary, your scones are just lovely. I could totally go for one with a cup of coffee right now. Great job :-)

    Mary, I wish I could sit down with you and eat pumpkin scones, all the while pouring tea from that darling pot. The scones look so delicious and so perfect for this magical, marvelous season.

    Oh, goodness, these scones are calling my name, but not before I make a run to our local HG. The teapot is adorable! Love that it is all white and sculpted. It’s warmer here today, but can’t complain about the weather we have been blessed with. There is definitely a touch of fall in the air. Hope you don’t have issues from the storm moving up the coast. Our friends who were in Charleston for a meeting were evacuated today. Hoping they can catch a late afternoon flight out of Columbia, SC. Traffic was at a crawl this morning.

    ~ Mary,

    I don’t know why but I couldn’t pull this up before, which is
    probably a good thing as I know I would have eaten a few
    of these with a nice cup of hot tea!
    I’m sure they will b a favorite when I make them for the weekend!!

  17. October 5, 2016 at 5:39 pm

    I haven’t had a scone in a long time Mary, they look great:@)

  18. October 6, 2016 at 5:33 am

    I can’t wait to make those Pumpkin Scones and that teapot is so adorable!!! Have a great upcoming weekend! Hugz Lisa and Bear

    Mary – Your scones look delicious, and the teapot is adorable! But what really tugs on my heartstrings is your brown transferware. Perfect for a cozy autumn tea. Thanks for this post.
