Pumpkin Scones w/ Pumpkin Spice Frosting

Let me just say that this is the best recipe I've ever made.  In my entire life.  The only thing I didn't like about it was that it didn't make more!  I'm going to make another batch for the freezer but unfortunately I don't see these lasting long in my house.  Ever.

Scone Ingredients:
2 cups flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 stick cold or frozen butter (1/4 cup)
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 egg

Mix first 8 ingredients together.  Cut in butter.  In seperate bowl, mix pumpkin, cream and egg together.  Beat wet into dry mixture a little at a time and just until mixed.  Don't overbeat.  Shape dough into disk on sprayed pizza stone or rectangle (3 inches wide by 1 inch think) on parchment lined baking sheet.  Cut into wedges.  Pull wedges apart so all sides are exposed.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Stick fork in center of largest wedge.  It should come out clean.  In not, bake another 5 minutes.

Frosting Ingredients:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tb canned pumpkin
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup heavy cream

Mix first 6 ingredients.  Drizzle cream in while whisking until frosting reaches molasses consistency.

**I have no idea how you're supposed to "shape" scones and cut and seperate them.  The dough was just too sticky.   This is the second time I've tried making scones and this was the case in both instances.  So I just cut them the best I could and kind of mushed them apart.  Then I pulled them out after 10 minutes or so and cut over the lines again.  They needed more like 23 minutes of cooking time, instead of the 15 minutes it called for, so I pulled them out and cut over the lines a second time.  And as I said, these turned out SO SO good!
