Pumpkin Scones G D Mod

Makes ~12


¼ cup castor sugar
50g butter (softened is best)
1 egg
250g pumpkin, precooked, mashed and
2 ½ cups self-raising flour, sifted
~ ¼ cup milk
Extra flour for kneading
5cm round cutter (the rim of a small
drinking cup will work)


Ahead of making the scones, precook the
pumpkin, mash it and cool it to at least
room temperature.
Preheat the oven to fan forced 1800 C
Grease a biscuit/cookie tray and sprinkle the tray lightly with flour

• Beat the butter and the sugar in a small bowl with an electric beater until the mixture is light and
• Add the egg and beat well
• Transfer mixture to a larger bowl
• Mix in the pumpkin until combined
• Then gradually stir in the sifted flour alternatively with small amounts of milk until you have a
soft, sticky dough.
• Turn the dough out onto a kneading surface that has been sprinkled with about 2 tablespoons of
self-raising flour.
• Knead gently until the mixture is smooth
• Press the dough out until it is about 2 cm thick
• Cut scone rounds out from the dough and place them up against each other on the biscuit tray.
Place 4 in a row touching each other and then start a new row in front of them so they all just
touch each other. Continue with another row as you cut the scones
• With a pastry brush, brush the top of the scones with a little milk
• Bake on fan forced for 20 minutes
• When you take them from the oven use a spatula to ease them from the tray as one group
• Transfer them to a tea-towel placed over a cooling rack. Cover the scones with the tea towel and
let them cool.
• Serve with butter
