  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 250g mashed pumpkin
  • 250g self-raising flour, sifted

  1. Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Line a baking tray.
  2. Beat together butter, sugar and salt. Add the egg, then pumpkin and stir in flour. Turn out onto a floured board.
  3. This tends to be a sticky dough so flour your hands or rolling pin. Do not overwork this dough, press or roll out to a 3cm thickness. Cut using round pastry/cookie cutters and place onto prepared baking tray.

You can use mashed butternut squash instead of pumpkin.
