  • Cut the butter into the dry ingredients, mix until the mixture feels like pebbles.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the heavy whipping cream, pumpkin puree, egg and vanilla extract.
  • Pour wet ingredients into the flour mixture and stir to combine.  Dough will be sticky.

  • Bake for 20 – 25 minutes until done.  Remove from oven and allow to cool before icing.

For the icing…

  • In a bowl, add heavy whipping cream to the confectioners sugar, 1 tbsp at a time.  Combine well until desired consistency is achieved.  Add maple extract and stir until smooth.  Drizzle on top of cooled scones.
