DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Lightly grease a baking tray.
  • Cream together butter and sugar, then beat in egg, pumpkin puree and 4 tablespoons milk until smooth. Add the mixed spice to the pumpkin mixture, taste and adjust the spices to taste. Stir in flour until a dough forms, then knead a few times on a well floured surface until the dough holds together. Add more flour if dough is too wet or sticky.
  • Press the dough into a flat circle 1 to 1.5cm thick. Cut into 6 wedges, place onto greased baking tray, and brush the tops with 2 tablespoons of milk.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown on top and bottom, 10 to 15 minutes. Once done, wrap scones with a clean tea towel and allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving with the honey butter.
  • Honey Butter: Mix the butter and honey together, adding the honey a spoon at a time until the right consistency is achieved. Mix well. Best served fresh with the pumpkin scones.
