After eating a delicious pumpkin scone from my favorite coffee shop, I went home and played around with a base recipe until I came up with what I believe to be a fabulous copy!
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
Mix flour, white sugar, baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger together in a large bowl; cut in butter and shortening using a pastry cutter or 2 knives until mixture is crumbly.
Mix pumpkin, egg, and half-and-half together in a separate bowl; stir into flour mixture just until combined. Turn dough onto a floured work surface and shape into a 1/2-inch-thick square. Cut dough into pizza-like wedges and arrange on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer scones to a wire rack to cool.
Whisk confectioners' sugar, milk, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice together in a bowl; drizzle over scones.

The quality of the flour could make a real deal to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal bread , which not always getting bigger as well as clear bread.
To make this in a dough , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A bread first rising can be done in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
