Pumpkin Spice Scones with Cream Cheese Frosting

October is in full swing and there’s no denying it – fall has arrived. While it’s bittersweet to pack away my sundresses and flip flops, there is an element of excitement with the change in season. Fall scarves, cozy boots and the infamous pumpkin spice latte are all perks of saying farewell to summer.

While baking these scones, the sweet smell of pumpkin spice enveloped our home and brought the festive spirit alive. Not soon after, I was rummaging around in our closet pulling out all of our fall decorations. It’s funny how the simple act of baking can lift your spirits and get you excited for the change in season (it’s no secret that I’ve been mourning the end of summer…)

Drizzled with cream cheese frosting, these pumpkin spice scones were the perfect way to welcome fall into our home. They are best enjoyed warm, right out of the oven, but if you wait to share them with coworkers I know they won’t mind!
