Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones with Pumpkin Glaze #SundaySupper

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones with Pumpkin Glaze

Ah, the first weekend of October.  The first weekend when it finally feels like fall.  I love fall, I’ve professed my love for fall many times.  Without a doubt it is the best time of year in New York.  The leaves are changing, the air is cool, crisp and not humid – usually – we did have a freakishly humid week this week, and the air just smells fresh. 

There is something about the smell of fall that I love.  I don’t know if it is the first bit of smoke from someone’s lit fire place hanging in the air, or the cool breeze from my open window at night while I’m sleeping.  Perhaps it is because everyone is ready to turn on their oven and start baking again, yeah, that’s it!

Fall means the color of my food change, no more bright summer vegetables to enjoy.  Now is the time for brussels sprouts, colorful cauliflower, and a lot of squash and pumpkin!  #SundaySupper is getting into the fall spirit this week celebrating “all things orange.”  It is an appropriate theme for this time of year, orange to me is one of the first colors I think of when it comes to fall.  Not just because of the food we eat, but because of the colors of the leaves and the sunset at night.

Alice's Tea Cup in NYC has one of the best pumpkin scones I've tasted. My version is adapted slightly from their recipe listed in their cookbook.

Save Recipe


    For the scones:
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup solid packed pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • For the glaze:
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 3 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees F. and line a baking sheets with parchment paper or a silpat.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, powder, salt, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. Using a pastry blender, two knives or your hands, add the butter and while working quickly mix the butter into the dry ingredients until the consistency is pebble-like.
  4. Stir in the milk and pumpkin puree and mix until well combined. Add the vanilla extract and chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly to make sure everything is well mixed.
  6. Transfer the dough to your baking sheet and pat into a round that is about 1 1/2 inches thick.
  7. With a sharp knife, cut the dough into 8 triangles, but do not separate the scones.
  8. Bake for 12 minutes, until brown and cooked through. While still warm, using a sharp knife cut through the previous cuts you made prior to cooking. Let cool for 20 minutes.
  9. While the scones are cooling, in a shallow dish whisk together 1 cup of the confections sugar, pumpkin puree, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Depending on the thickness of the glaze you may need to add more sugar. Adjust as needed, if you feel like it could use a little more pumpkin flavor, go ahead and add some more puree.
  10. When the scones are cool, dip the tops into the glaze and set aside to set.
  11. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Recipe Type: breads, breakfast, chocolate

    I’ve been wanting to make scones for awhile now and I might just start with this very amazing recipe. You had me with pumpkin but then you threw in the chocolate chips and I was sold. These turned out delicious and sound absolutely amazing.
