Step 1Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2Combine flour, 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger in the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix using the paddle attachment. Add butter to the bowl and toss using a spatula to ensure butter is coated in flour mixture. Mix until mixture resembles cornmeal with butter pieces no bigger than a pea, about 2 minutes.
Step 3Whisk pumpkin, egg, and half-and-half together in a bowl until blended. Fold pumpkin mixture into flour mixture until dough can be formed into a ball.
Step 4Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface press with your hands into a long rectangle, 3/4- to 1-inch thick. Use a pizza cutter to cut dough into 4 rectangles. Cut each rectangle into 2 triangles. Place dough triangles onto the prepared baking sheet.
Step 5Bake in the preheated oven until scones begin to brown around the edges and on top, about 15 minutes.
Step 6Transfer scones to a wire rack to cool completely, about 20 minutes.
Step 7Mix powdered sugar and milk together in a small bowl, using more sugar or more milk to reach the desired consistency. Use a brush to spread glaze on the cooled scones. Allow to harden, about 10 minutes.
Step 8Meanwhile, mix powdered sugar, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves together in a small bowl. Drizzle spiced glaze over the first glaze and allow to harden completely, about 10 minutes more.
