It’s finally fall, which means that when we aren’t scavenging the Costco bakery aisle for seasonal treats like caramel apple mini cakes and its famous pumpkin pies, we’re busy baking up a storm at home. Nothing washes down a homemade fall baked good quite like a pumpkin spice latte, but if you want to double down on the warming cinnamon spice and robust coffee flavor of the coveted PSL in your baked goods, too, then there’s one recipe you’ve got to try. Ree Drummond, author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays, has a coffee-glazed pumpkin scone recipe, and it’s the perfect fall treat for coffee lovers and pumpkin heads alike.
Unlike the pumpkin spice lattes you may get at the coffee shop, these pumpkin scones really do contain pumpkin. It keeps the scones tender and from drying out. The scones are made simply with a handful of your typical baking ingredients like flour, brown sugar, butter, cream, eggs, and pumpkin pie spice. Make sure to use a quality pumpkin pie spice blend, since it’s the primary flavor component in these scones.
But just as a pumpkin spice latte is even better with whipped cream on top, Drummond knows that even the best pumpkin spice scones can be made better with a little something fun on top. That’s where her coffee glaze comes in. In a large mixing bowl (we love this colorful Pioneer Woman mixing bowl set), Drummond makes a luscious icing of powdered sugar, strong coffee, and salted butter. The little bit of salt from the butter makes the flavors sing, and the strong coffee keeps the icing from tasting overly sweet.

One the icing is spooned over the scones, they get sprinkled with more pumpkin spice. The result is tender, buttery pumpkin scones coated in a satisfyingly sweet and sticky coffee glaze that tastes like fall through and through. Make this recipe once, and we have a feeling you’ll end up making it a lot this holiday season. Which makes sense, since it did come from someone who wrote an entire book on holiday recipes! What can’t The Pioneer Woman do?
