I’ve been sitting on this scone recipe for weeks now and almost gave up on sharing it. But they’re just so dang good I knew I couldn’t abandon my plans and just put it off awhile longer until I had time to do a proper post devoted to the glory that are Pumpkin Spice Scones. What better time than the beginning of fall to share a comforting, satisfying, warm scone, right?

To start, you’ll combine some flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl.

Next, cut in some butter until the mixture is a crumbly mess. You want the butter in pea-sized clumps. Once it’s there, stop.

In a separate bowl, mix together an egg yolk, some honey, and buttermilk.

Add to the dry ingredients and stir until it’s just barely combined.

Now add in pumpkin spice chips! I discovered the ones in this recipe by Nestle at my local Walmart.

Remove the dough and place into a floured surface.

Pat and roll the dough until you’ve formed a circle. You don’t need to knead or mix anything. Just sort of gently mold the dough together into a circle. Or close to it. My circle is pretty sad looking, but it works.

Roll it or pat it into about a half inch thickness. And then cut it in half.

Then in half again.

From here, you can cut it into as many slices as you’d like. I like to make them smaller, so I cut until it looks like this.

Transfer your sliced scones onto a greased baking sheet.

Bake them at 400F for 10 minutes.

You can enjoy these just as they are, but if you really want to experience a scone in all it’s glory, you’ll need a hot cup of coffee. PSL, anyone?

Friends, these scones are delicious. Enjoy them with coffee, tea, or even hot chocolate….who am I kidding, enjoy them by themselves even!

If you’re not a baker or don’t consider yourself a cook, a scone recipe is a good place to start. Scones are a forgiving recipe and succeed pretty much every single time.
