Recipe by Katzen
READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 6 Scones




  • Preheat oven to 400 F / 200 C / Gas 6. Lightly grease a baking tray or line with parchment paper.
  • Cream together butter and sugar, then beat in egg, pumpkin puree, maple syrup or extract (if using), and 4 tablespoons milk until smooth. Add the mixed spice to the pumpkin mixture, taste and adjust the spices to taste. Stir in flour and oatmeal until a dough forms, add nuts and chips, then knead a few times on a well floured surface until the dough holds together. 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 and sprinkle with spiced sugar (mixture of sugar and spice).
  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown on top and bottom, 15 to 20 minutes. Once done, wrap scones with a clean tea towel and allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving (with the honey butter from referenced recipe if preferred.).
