Pumpkin Pecan Scones with cinnamon icing

Today I was trying to think of something for breakfast. I cut a piece of bread, toasted it, put butter on it and ate it. Then I felt like there just had to be more. This day needed to be more. I remembered a little bit of pumpkin in the fridge and wondered how the day would change with scones. Not just any scones but the best scones ever because they would have PUMPKIN!!! It's pumpkin season people. Yay!

Pumpkin Pecan Scones with cinnamon glaze

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a food processor combine-
1 C bread flour
1 C cake flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
and 6 T brown sugar
with 6 T cold butter
Until crumbly

Put in a bowl and add-
1/3 C heavenly cream (oops I meant heavy :))
1/3 C pumpkin puree
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c chopped pecans

Mix until just moistened. It will still be kind of dry but needs to hold together.  Turn out on a slightly floured counter and make into two circles. Cut into 12 triangles.
Bake for 15 minutes.

To make the glaze:
Combine 1 c powdered sugar, 1/2- 1 tap cinnamon (your taste), and 1 T milk
When scones are mostly cook drizzle the glaze over and enjoy! Or rub it all over your face. :)
