A light, flaky scone that brings fall to your home. It is bursting with fall spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and is flavored with pumpkin. The drizzle of icing melts in your mouth. These are absolutely addictive! My favorite fall item so far. They taste just like the pumpkin scones from Starbucks!
