Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones - Veggies First Then Dessert #PumpkinWeek


Are you as thrilled as I am that pumpkin season has arrived?! I love baking with pumpkin, it gives the most delicious and moist results. It's perfect for Fall Baking!

Like these pumpkin chocolate chip scones. The rich pumpkin, subtle spices, and gooey chocolate make for an irresistible combination. I have found it's hard to beat a warm scone, enjoyed with a cup of creamy coffee for breakfast or afternoon snack.

These scones are quick, easy, tender, and so good. They have just the right amount of sweetness from the chocolate chips and glaze. and go perfectly with a cup of coffee or tea, or even a glass of milk if you prefer.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones

Ingredients

FOR THE SCONES:
1 1/2 cups gluten-free baking mix (I used King Arthur)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
small pinch ground nutmeg
small pinch cloves
1/2 cup canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie mix)
1 egg
1/8 cup cashew milk (any non-dairy milk will work)
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) vegan butter, frozen
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life semi-sweet mini chocolate chips)
FOR THE GLAZE:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons cashew milk

Directions

Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, salt, nutmeg, and cloves. Set aside. In a separate bowl whisk together pumpkin, egg, and milk. Set aside.
Grate frozen butter with a box grater. Add butter and chocolate chips to the flour mixture and toss gently to combine. 
Fold pumpkin mixture into flour mixture, until a dough forms. (Don’t overmix the dough, a little flour still showing is fine)
Scoop dough out onto a floured surface. Knead a couple of times with the flour if the dough is to sticky, but try to work the dough as little as possible, Form into a 6-inch circle and place it on the prepared baking pan.
Use a pizza cutter to divide the circle into 6 triangles. Gently move the triangles out a little bit, so there is a little space between each one.
Bake for 22 - 25 minutes, until light golden brown and set on top, and golden brown on the bottom. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then move to a wire rack to finish cooling.
To make the glaze:  Mix the powdered sugar, cinnamon, and milk together with a fork until smooth. Drizzle glaze over scones once cooled.

NOTES:

  • Place any leftovers in an airtight container, and store at room temperature for up to 3 days. Reheat very briefly in the microwave, if desired.
  • To Freeze Scones: Wrap scones individually in plastic wrap, then place in a large freezer bag, removing excess air. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months, and allow to thaw on the counter at room temperature.
  • Use frozen butter. Like pie crust, it’s best to use cold butter in scone dough.
