Fall is in the air! And if you’ve been following us for any amount of time, you probably know that while Christmas is our favorite holiday, fall is our favorite season. And with fall, of course, comes pumpkin spice everything! Add in our love for tea, and we decided we needed to try our hand at some Mickey pumpkin spice scones!
We’ve talked about our love for fall before, so if you’re new here, well get ready for fall overload. Apple picking, the changing colors of the leaves, the cooler temps, searching for that perfect pumpkin, well, it’s all just our favorite. And with cooler temps means more time to try out our favorite recipes, plan more movie nights and just slow things down. We can’t resist the urge to cozy up in a fuzzy blanket and enjoy warm pumpkin chai and pumpkin spice scones.
And as much as we love Starbucks, some things are better off being enjoyed in the comfort of your own home, and in your comfy pants. You know I’m right.
We are huge fans of the The Minimalist Baker and use her recipes whenever we can. So we thought why not try to make a Mickey version of her pumpkin spice scones?!
Not only are these absolutely delicious, but they’re super quick and easy to make. You can check out her entire cookbook here, or just the recipe itself here.
The only change we made to the actual recipe was that we doubled the spices. We always tend to use a bit of a heavy hand when seasoning anything pumpkin because we love a good, rich spice to mellow out the earthiness of the pumpkin. And we used a Mickey cookie cutter obviously. Instead of cutting the dough into 8 sections, we used the Mickey cookie cutter to cut individual Mickey shaped scones. It can be tricky to transfer them to the pan since the dough will be slightly sticky, but we found that using spatula helped.
We also used our own Maple Glaze recipe(see below), since we prefer real maple syrup when possible.
