The Fall recipes have commenced! And with that, I bring you a very simple recipe to create delicious Pumpkin Spice Scone Cookies. They are a bit more light and fluffy than your average scone and are the perfect amount of sweetness.


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) cold unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 3 tablespoons half and half
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract

Mix dry ingredients together. While the butter is still cold (not too hard, just cold) knead into dry mix with hands. In a separate bowl add together the remaining wet ingredients. Then combine everything gently, by folding together with a wooden spatula.

Fold into small, golf ball-sized balls and bake for 13-16 minutes (depending on oven size) at 425 degrees. You can also top these off with a light glaze, or enjoy them as is! These are the perfect *not too sweet* treat to enjoy with a cup of joe!
