Sharing is caring!

Hi! So I’m super excited to announce that today is my family’s second annual Fall Fun Day! “What is Fall Fun Day?” you ask. Fall Fun Day is any day in the middle of October dedicated to doing every fun fall activity one can think of in one awesome day! It originated last year as my birthday celebration because I had day off school the Friday before my birthday. I decided I wanted to spend my last days before legal adulthood doing all the fall things I love, but never have time to do anymore. The day began by baking a batch of Egg Free Pumpkin Scones & Maple Nutmeg Glaze. Then we went apple picking, hiking, picnicking, and ended the day with a corn maze.

We had so much fun that we decided it would be an annual event, so here we are one year later with me still being a kid at heart. This year’s itinerary consists of baking these scones, going to the Dane County Farmer’s Market, hiking and picnicking at Yellowstone Lake State Park, apple picking, and ending the day with the corn maze once again.

How to Make Egg Free Pumpkin Scones

Preheat the oven to 350℉ and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, sea salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Cut the butter into the flour mixture. Use a pastry blender or your hands to break it up into pea sized pieces. You could also put all the ingredients in a food processor to quickly distribute the butter.

In a smaller bowl, whisk the pumpkin, buttermilk, and maple syrup. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix together with a wooden spoon. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and form it into a circle about 1-2 inches high. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 8-12 triangles, depending on how large you want them.

Place the scones on the baking sheets and bake at 350℉ until the scones are lightly golden brown, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and place the scones on a cooling rack.

When the scones are cool, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk often until it begins to brown. Add the powdered sugar, water, maple syrup, and nutmeg. Whisk to combine. Remove from heat and drizzle over the scones right away (otherwise it will harden). Enjoy!
