While scones are best known to originate from England and served with tea, scones can be eaten plain or with glazes, homemade cream, jam, or all of the above! We believe these Pumpkin Scones with Maple Glaze are perfect for the fall season and would pair perfectly with a steaming cup of tea.
To get the golden brown top on the scones, brush some egg on top! We recommend our Original Pasture-Raised eggs for this recipe.
