Easy Pumpkin Scones

The Castle cake I made the other day used heaps less ingredients than I had planned so I have plenty of left over flour and tubs and tubs of butter. So today I picked up a pumpkin today and cranked on the oven and whipped up a batch of Pumpkin Scones.

Don't they just look so yummy! They are hot and fresh out of the oven and (confession) I had 3 immediately with way too much butter. 

Easy Pumpkin Scones

3 1/2 cups self raising flour (Keep about 3 more cups)
1 cup mashed up pumpkin
55g Butter
1 egg
1/2 sugar
1/2 cup milk

1. Beat butter into submission until soft, add in the sugar. Mix in the smooshy pumpkin and the egg. Add milk, then slowly add flour (Add more flour as needed) 

2. Turn dough onto a very floured board and knead gently. Roll out and cut out small circles.

3. Place onto floured baking tray, Bake at 200C for 15mins. 

They turn out really yummy, but don't eat them all yourself!! Share them!
