Ginger Pumpkin Scones Recipe

Ginger Pumpkin Scones Recipe

Continuing with my research on unearthing the best scones recipes, I found one for pumpkin scones! How seasonally appropriate.

These were very good. All of us enjoyed these and ate them up rather quickly.

I did substitute pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon because I can’t seem to remember that I’ve been out of cinnamon for a month now! We go through that rather fast. Enjoy!

Best Scones Recipes: Pumpkin Ginger Scones

From Taste of Home.


  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 7 Tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon Sugar, Divided
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 5 tablespoons Cold Butter, divided
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 Cup Canned Pumpkin
  • 1/4 Cup Sour Cream


  1. Combine Dry Ingredients, using 7 Tablespoons of Sugar.
  2. Cut in 4 Tablespoons Cold Butter until mixture has mostly small lumps but hasn't been crumbled entirely into pea sized lumps.
  3. Combine Egg, Pumpkin, and Sour Cream in separate bowl.
  4. Stir into Dry Ingredients just until moistened.
  5. Knead 10 times on floured surface (I sometimes just knead it in the bowl).
  6. Shape into 8" circle--I managed to shape this recipe into two circles for double the wedges, and the wedges were still enormous.
  7. Cut into wedges. Separate wedges and place on greased cookie sheet.
  8. Melt remaining Butter and brush tops of scones.
  9. Sprinkle with remaining Sugar (coarse sugar would be great here!).
  10. Bake 425* for 15 - 20 minutes or until light golden brown.


I subbed in Pumpkin Pie Spice for the Cinnamon.
