After years of telling me that he doesn’t like scones, yet liking every scone I’ve made, my husband still “claims” to not like them. These glazed pumpkin chocolate chip scones may have changed his mind. I thought they would be the perfect recipe to kick-off #PumpkinWeek this year. Why, because over the last few years, we’ve become a scone loving family. While these are perfect for fall, so are my apple cinnamon scones with salted caramel drizzle. Other favorite scone recipes include my white chocolate orange pecan scones with orange glaze and dried cherry and almond scones. There’s just something about a scone with a cup of coffee or tea.

In addition to this scone recipe, there will be recipes from more than 35 bloggers all week long. All including the fall favorite ingredient, pumpkin. So these don’t look like your classic or traditional scones. You probably know scones in a triangle shape. I chose to make a drop scone using a ¼-cup scoop. Drop scones work better with soft dough.

The reason my husband never liked scones is he always thought they were dry. To be honest, some recipes can be dry but these are not. My youngest son, a foodie in his own right, declared these the best scones I’ve ever made. He thought they were a bit more cake-like. Both he and I agreed that, once they were out of the oven, they needed a glaze. They are pretty yummy warm from the oven but the glaze just adds a little something extra.

I also shared some of these scones with our pumpkin loving neighbors and they enjoyed them too. They are really much for sweets and thought the balance was great. Just the right amount of sweetness from the chocolate chips and glaze. Enjoy with coffee or tea for breakfast or take a couple to work for your mid-morning break.
