Pumpkin Pie Spice Cream Scones – Plump, rich, yet light and sweet scones flavored with pumpkin pie spice creamer and a simple spiced glaze.
It’s baaaaaack! PUMPKIN is back!
I waited. I waited until mid-September to post my very first pumpkin recipe of the season!
Is that an applause? Thaaanks!
You know, the weekend is about to start and we have these Pumpkin Pie Spice Cream Scones to welcome it! Like more PLEASE!
They are big, puffy, and crackly on top, and beautifully moist and deliciously sweet inside, and perfect for all your breakfasts and brunches, and afternoon lunches. They represent my love of all things Fall, pumpkin, comfort, and my coping mechanisms when left home alone with a jug of International Delight’s Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer.
I was trying to pace myself, so at first I only used the creamer in a cup of coffee. It tastes like you’ve dunked a slice of Pumpkin Pie IN your coffee, minus all the calories!
Theeeen, because that wasn’t enough, I had this brilliant idea to *just* make a simple glaze with it. So I did. And it was bomb! As in, really good!
Theeeen, what does one do if they don’t want to eat up all the perfectly spiced and sweet glaze?
Bingo! One makes scones and tea because one BIG scone is always a better and lighter idea than a few teaspoons of glaze… *rolls eyes*
When I decide to make cream scones, I want big puffy ones, moist, not too dense and not too light, and golden brown. And then I get obsessed and keep tweaking and sampling the recipe until all my hard work pays off and they turn out just how I want them.
THIS, in my opinion, is a perfect scone. Perfect height, perfect texture, and the most perfect PUMPKIN taste.
These cream scones have about 150 calories less than the Starbucks-kind, and they are made with not just pumpkin pie spice creamer, but also yogurt and oats. Half the butter, too. And if you omit the glaze, they might just be calorie-free. PAH-hahaha! I make joke.
International Delight’s Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer is only a seasonal product, thus it’s limited, so you should go and do what I did; stock up! The store I got it from only had 3 jugs left and I took all three, but not before giving my email to the dairy section manager asking her to get in touch with me when it’s back in stock.
Also, for all you iced coffee fans, along with the classic Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer, this year International Delight is introducing Pumpkin Pie Spice Iced Coffee, too! Yipee!
One more thing? We’re going to top today’s scones with said creamer + powdered sugar + spices, in three…two….one.
