Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 level tablespoon butter
  • 3 level tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 cup cooked mashed pumpkin
  • (I felt that they needed a little spice so I added some pumpkin pie spice. I figure about 1/2 - 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, or your own blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves)

Directions

  • Cream butter with sugar, add egg and incorporate. Mix in pumpkin. Sift together the dry ingredients and mix in the pumpkin mixture and the milk. Knead gently on a lightly dusted board. Cut into rounds with a scone or biscuit cutter.
  • Bake in a hot oven (400°F/204°C) for 15 minutes. They stuck a bit to my baking sheet so consider using parchment or a silpat.
  • Really a very nice, subtle pumpkin flavor. Tasty with out without the added spice.

Notes

My Australian friend Pug gave me this recipe. It's incredibly simple and extremely addictive!
