1/3 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

2 tablespoons + 1/2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice

1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted

1/2 cup raisins

1 egg

3 teaspoons maple syrup, divided

3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons heavy cream

2 cups confectioners sugar

6. With a rolling pin, very gently roll out the dough into a 10-inch round, about ¾ -1 inch thick. Cut into 8 equal-size wedges and arange 2 inches apart on the prepared pan.

7. Bake for 22 to 26 minutes, until they're just golden brown.

8. Allow the scones to cool completely before icing.

9. To make the icing - whisk the confectioner's sugar, remaining 2 tablespoons maple syrup, 1 tablespoon cream and 1/2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice until smooth. Drizzle over the scones.
