It's August and I'm posting a pumpkin recipe. Is it too early for pumpkin flavors? Actually-don't answer that.. I know some people go crazy for pumpkin everything. It's one of those flavors with a cult following. Do you know people who eat pumpkin flavored things all year long?! I like to limit it to just a few months of the year... But why not get a head start? :)

These scones are so delicious. Not only do they pack a big pumpkin punch, but they are full of fall spices-cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. They taste like fall. And the maple glaze? It's perfect! Normally I don't put glaze on scones because I think they are great without it. But this glaze just takes them over the top. The flavors go great together.

Get a jumpstart on you fall pumpkin quota with these scones. You won't regret it.

Remove the butter from the freezer, and stir in the flour mixture. Then fold the pumpkin mixture in gently, until just combined.5. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and gently pat down, and fold it over itself about 4 times. Form into a flat disc about 1-1 1/2 inch thick, and cut like a pizza into 8 scones.6. Place scones on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat. Bake at 400°F for about 15 minutes, until scones have puffed up and no longer look wet.7. While scones cool, prepare the glaze. To make the glaze, combine maple syrup, water, and powdered sugar. Stir until no lumps remain. Drizzle over the scones and let the glaze dry before serving.
