Recipe by Becwil75

I have heard nothing but rave reviews about these scones my entire life! Flo Bejelke-Petersen is a bit of an Australian Icon and has an amazing reputation for her cooking skills. I am yet to try this recipe but look forward to doing so in the very near future. Look out for my review once I do! :)

These are excellent scones. Light and fluffy. I did have some problems with the moisture content of the pumpkin, requiring closer to 3 cups of flour to bring the dough together, but the end result was still very nice. I also added some nutmeg to the mixture and sprinkled over the scones before baking. The smell in the kitchen was divine.... Looking forward to a cup of coffee and some scones. Thanks spo_rt :)
