Maple Glazed Pumpkin Scones

I wonder if we would love pumpkin as much as we do if it were something we ate year round? But since it only feels right to eat it during a certain time period I feel like I need to eat all things pumpkin during the fall months. These scones are now on my must make list for every fall season!

2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick cold unsalted butter
1/2 cup pumpkin
3 tbsps whole milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
2-3 tbsp whole milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

 Heat oven to 425. Grease a sheet pan.  In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients until it is a crumbly mixture. In a separate bowl combine with pumpkin, milk, egg and vanilla extract. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet. On a floured surface pat the dough into a 1 inch thick rectangle. Cut into 4 squares then cut each square in half. Bake for 15-18 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool. While the scones are cooling whisk together the powdered sugar, maple syrup, milk and vanilla extract. Dip each scone into the glaze and allow the glaze to set before eating.
