Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar , lightly packed
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin spice
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, cooled and diced into small cubes
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

FOR THE SPICED CHAI GLAZE

  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar (powdered sugar)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 3-4 teaspoons Oregon Chai Tea Latte Concentrate

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350º F (200º C). Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt.
  • Add the cold diced butter and using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • In a separate small bowl, whisk with heavy cream, pure pumpkin, and vanilla extract until combined.
  • Create a small well in the center of the flour mixture. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the well and stir with a fork until the dough comes together.
  • Roll dough out into a 3/4-inch-thick round. Cut into 8 wedges, and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  • For best texture and highest rise, place the pan of scones in the freezer for 15-30 minutes, uncovered.
  • Brush the scones with heavy cream and bake for about 18 to 20 minutes or until risen, set in the centers and slightly golden on the bottoms.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool down completely on a wire rack.

Glaze:

  • Prepare the vanilla glaze: Mix the ingredients in a small bowl until smooth.
  • When the scones are cool, spoon the glaze on each scone before drizzling the glaze. Let the glaze set before serving.

Notes

 
Make ahead tip: After you freeze the unbaked scones 30 minutes in the freezer and they are frozen solid, place them in a Ziploc plastic bag. Return to the freezer, and store for up to a month. Bake as directed (without thawing), adding a couple of extra minutes if needed.
 
Storing: Place cooled scones in a Ziploc plastic bag and store at room temperature for up to 3 days. You can also wrap them in plastic if you prefer.
 
Reheating: To reheat room-temperature scones, place on a baking sheet, tent lightly with foil, and warm in a preheated 350°F oven for about 10 minutes.
 
Freezing: you can store baked scones in the freezer up to one month. Wrap them in plastic wrap and place them in a freezer Ziploc plastic bag. To defrost them, put in a low oven (about 325º F /160º C) for a few minutes to refresh.
