Flo’s Pumpkin Scones

Lady Flo may have been the wife of Queensland’s Premier, Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen, but it was her Pumpkin Scones which shot her to fame.

2 cups self-raising flour
1 cup pumpkin, cooked and mashed (cold)
1 tablespoon butter
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat your oven to 225’c
Beat the butter until soft and add the sugar and salt. Mix in the pumpkin mash and the egg. Now slowly stir in the flour. Turn dough onto a floured board and knead
Roll out and cut dough into small circles
Place onto a greased tray and bake for 15-20 minutes

While it’s not in Flo’s original recipe, a pinch of cinnamon gives another dimension!
