One of the best things I make is PUMPKIN SCONES.  So easy and once again a recipie from high school.  As with the scones I have not had an epic fail yet.

2 Tablespoons of butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup cooked and mashed pumkin
1 egg
2.5 cups of self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon cinamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup milk.

  1. Beat butter and sugar to a cream.
  2. Add mashed pumpkin and mix well.
  3. Add egg and beat well.
  4. Sift flour, ginger, salt, cinamon and nutmeg together.
  5. Fold dry ingredients into the creamed mixture alternatively with the milk to make a moist dough.
  6. Turn onto a floured surface and kneed slightly.
  7. Press out to a 2.5 cm thickness.
  8. Cut out with cutter or a glass if u do not have a cutter.
  9.  Place onto a slightly greased tray starting and the centre and working outwards.  Make sure your scones are just touching each other.
  10. Brush with a little milk.'Bake in a hot oven for 10 - 12 min or until golden brown.
  11. Enjoy with a bit of jam or a dolup of sour cream.
Makes 12.
