Since when did Mimosas and Bloody Marys earn the exclusive spots as top brunch drinks?? I don’t know about you, but I’m not a huge fan of Bloody Marys. And my wife prefers her Mimosas without the orange juice.
It’s time we introduce a new drink to the brunch scene…and I suggest we start with this Kahlúa Iced Pumpkin Latte. Iced coffees are all the rage right now, but they are so incredibly easy to make at home…and talk about an impressive drink to serve if you have houseguests or friends over for brunch! And these Maple Pumpkin Scones are the perfect tasty treat to serve alongside that iced latte.
Maple Pumpkin Scones have been a favorite in my house for years, and I’ve adapted them in a number of different ways. But the thing I love most about these scones is how easy they are to make. Don’t get me wrong here…I love baked breakfast items.
In fact, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that biscuits, muffins, scones, etc. are probably my favorite category of food. But I admit that sometimes baked breakfast treats require a bit of effort…especially when you have guests staying with you.
Allow me to introduce you to these Maple Pumpkin Scones! The batter only takes a couple of minutes to mix, and then you just drop them on a lined cookie sheet to bake. Drizzle a simple glaze over them once they’ve baked, and you’re ready to go. That’s it! (And because these are drop scones, the tops get these wonderful little crispy golden bits that I find quite addicting.)
Both the scones as well as the iced latte get their delicious Autumn flavors from Kahlúa’s new Pumpkin Spice. I’m a long-time fan of original Kahlúa, and I’m a huge fan of Fall flavors…so I found this Pumpkin Spice to be a delicious new addition to the Kahlúa line. In fact, I can’t decide whether I enjoy drinking it or baking with it more. So I just decided to do both!
As the weather continues to get colder, don’t forget to take a moment to stop and treat yourself to the delicious flavors of Fall. (For more Pumpkin Spice deliciousness, check out last week’s Apple Cider Cupcakes and Pumpkin Latte Martini.)

- Repeat with remaining batter, spacing the scones about 2” apart on the baking sheet.
