    About this recipe: These Australian-born scones are reminiscent of Queensland, where the popular Queensland Blue pumpkin grows. A very tasty treat!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 4 tablespoons softened butter
    • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 250g pumpkin puree
    • 4 tablespoons milk
    • 250g self raising flour
    • 2 tablespoons milk

    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Lightly grease a baking tray.
    2. Cream together butter and sugar, then beat in egg, pumpkin puree and 4 tablespoons milk until smooth. Stir in flour until a dough forms, then knead a few times on a well floured surface until the dough holds together. Press the dough into a flat circle 1 to 1.5cm thick. Cut into 6 wedges, place onto greased baking tray, and brush the tops with 2 tablespoons of milk.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown on top and bottom, 10 to 15 minutes. Once done, wrap scones with a clean tea towel and allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving.
