Flo's Pumpkin Scones

Jess has asked me to post Flo's famous pumpkin scone recipe.
I haven't tried this one yet but this is it......

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

Beat together butter, sugar and salt using an electric mixer.
Add egg, then pumpkin.
Finally stir in, by hand, sifted SR flour.
Turn onto a floured board and cut.
Place on a heated floured tray and cook on the top shelf
of a very hot oven (225 degrees C to 250 degrees C) for 15-20 mins.

Yummo......sounds delicious!

Lady Flo came to my school for our year 11 speech night.

We all had to bring a plate.

80% of the plates were pumpkin scones. She wasn't a woman who cringed, but I imagine she may have that night.

I have the recipe on a postcard somewhere. i picked the post card up at the wonderful peanut van in Kingaroy, QLD (foundly known in my family as the peanut capital of australia).

my dad LOVES making scones - i think it is the simplicity of it (flour, milk, salt). anyway he adds dates to his scones which are EXCELLENT!
