These scones are so deliciously unique because the pumpkin and vanilla flavors combine seamlessly and are not overpowered by traditional spices usually found in recipes featuring pumpkin.


Pumpkin Scones

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 5 tbsp cane sugar
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp baking powder (high altitude 2 ½ tsp)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup cold unsalted butter, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 Rodelle Vanilla Beans, split and scraped
  • 2 tbsp Rodelle Cinnamon Sugar (optional)

Spiced Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp whole milk
  • 1 tsp Rodelle Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg from Rodelle Baking Set
  • Pinch of ginger from Rodelle Baking Set
  • Pinch of ground cloves
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cane sugar, baking powder, and salt. Arrange the butter on top so the slices don’t overlap and cut through the mixture with a pastry cutter until the butter is about the size of peas.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, milk and scraped Rodelle Vanilla Bean seeds.
  4. Stir into the flour mixture just long enough to absorb the milk and any loose flour.
  5. Add a tbsp or so of milk if mixture still has loose flour. Make a rough ball shape in the bowl.
  6. Dump the ball of dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Using your hands, flatten the dough into a disk shape. It may be necessary to knead it a little to get it to hold together, but don’t knead more than necessary. It should be a loose, shaggy mass.
  7. Roll it out into a ¾-inch-thick disk.
  8. Cut disk into 8 wedges and arrange them on a baking sheet. If desired, sprinkle tops of scones with the Rodelle Cinnamon Sugar.
  9. TURN DOWN THE OVEN temp to 350°F.
  10. Bake for about 30 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes before glazing.
  11. Whisk together the glaze ingredients.
  12. Drizzle on top of scones.
