Scones are the ultimate brunch treat, and these Triple Pumpkin Scones with Cream Cheese Icing are sure to be a hit. They are packed with pumpkin and drizzled with a decadent cream cheese icing that is finger licking good.
Scones are the quintessential breakfast/brunch treat. They’re perfect for dishing up at home, bringing to friends’ homes, and serving up at brunch potlucks.
Scones, much like cookies, begin as a blank canvas for the home cook (aka artist!) to create with. Make them sweet or savory, according the season, or just to suit whatever your tummy craves.
This time, I couldn’t get cream cheese icing out of my head, so here we go…
Triple Pumpkin Scones with Cream Cheese Icing. Hello, Beauties.
These are moist, satisfying, and full of pumpkin flavor. I even accidentally overbaked my scones (timer malfunction?!) and they still came out fairly tender. If you don’t overbake them, they’ll be awesomely moist.
These scones are packed with pure pumpkin, roasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas), and pumpkin chips.
Pumpkin chips only come around seasonally each fall, so grab ’em while they are still here. When I saw them at Target, I dropped several bags into my cart, giddy with the possibilities.
When my friend said her mom’s favorite morning treat was a pumpkin scone, I couldn’t wait to bake these up for her birthday.
The group of us happily munched on these pumpkiny scones with our coffee and tea, and I quickly decided I’ll definitely be making these again.
The cream cheese icing is finger licking delicious. It really kicks up the yum factor on these scones. No skipping the cream cheese icing, please. Like anyone needs coercing.
