Ingredients

  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 80 grams butter chilled
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk plus a little extra to brush over the scones
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2/3 cup mashed pumpkin

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 230 degrees celsius and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Place the self raising flour, salt and nutmeg into a large bowl.
  • Add the butter (which has been cut into cubes) and use your fingertips to rub it into mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add the milk, sugar, grated parmesan cheese and mashed pumpkin and mix together with a butter knife.
  • Turn the scone mixture onto a floured surface and knead lightly to bring it together into a dough.
  • Use your hands to shape the scone mixture until it's approximately 3cm thick and dip your cutter into a little flour and cut out the scones.
  • Bring excess dough back together and cut out more scones until all of the mixture has been used.
  • Place the scones into the baking tray so that they are almost touching and use a pastry brush to brush a little milk over the top of them.
  • Place the scones into your preheated oven and bake for 12 -15 minutes or until risen and golden.

Notes

If you mixture is too wet or dry, simply add a little extra self raising flour or milk
