Cooking time
12 minutes
3 Cups
All-purpose flour
2⁄3 Cup
½ tsp
Baking soda
2 ½ tsp
Baking powder
¾ tsp
Kosher salt
2 tsp
Pumpkin pie spice, or ¼ tsp. ground nutmeg, ¼ tsp. ground ginger, 1 ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
½ Cup
Chilled butter, cubed
½ Cup
Buttermilk, made with a2 Milk® Whole (see below)
1 Cup
Canned pumpkin puree
1 ½ tsp
Vanilla extract
½ Cup
a2 Milk® Whole
1 tsp
Cream of tartar
Maple Cinnamon Glaze
½ Cup
Powdered sugar, sifted
1 Tbsp
Butter, melted
2 tsp
Maple syrup
3-4 Tbsp
a2 Milk® Whole
¼ tsp
  1. To make the buttermilk, whisk together the whole milk and the cream of tartar. Allow the mixture to thicken for 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Add the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spice blend to the food processor. Pulse to combine.
  4. Add the butter cubes to the food processor and pulse until the mixture is fully incorporated.
  5. Whisk together the pumpkin puree and vanilla extract. Slowly add to the dry mixture and blend until just combined.
  6. Turn the dough onto a floured work surface and knead just once to avoid toughness. Form the dough into a 1 ½ inch disc and cut into 8 triangles.
  7. Place the cut dough on the prepared baking sheet with an inch in-between. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the tops are golden, and a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Transfer the scones to a rack over a sheet of parchment paper and allow them to cool for 10 minutes.
  9. To make the glaze, use a hand mixer to combine the sifted powdered sugar, melted butter, syrup and vanilla. Gradually add the milk until the consistency is smooth and fluid for drizzling.
  10. Once the scones have cooled, use a fork to drizzle the glaze over the top. Serve warm.
