Mamma’s Pumpkin Scones

We used to spend holidays at the family farm in the rolling hills outside the city when we were growing up.  For us it was a chance to roam free, dam the creek, catch our own Marron and explore.  One of my favourite food memories are the Pumpkin scones Mum used to make that we would eat by the roaring wood fire to warm ourselves when we returned.  They are DELICIOUS !!!


Ingredients:
3 Tablespoons Butter
1 cup Sugar
2 Egg
2 cup cold mashed Pumpkin
4 cups Self Raising Flour


Method:
Preheat the oven to 200C.  Cream butter and sugar


Add eggs and beat


Mix in mashed pumpkin

Stop mixing as soon as combined

Serve hot with lots of butter !!!
