Two posts in one day! Free pumpkin recipe

Aren't you lucky people :)

I wanted to share these pumpkin scones with you. They are divine!

Preheat oven to 200c

250g squash/pumpkin, steamed until tender. Mash with 20g butter until smooth. Beat in 1 egg, pinch of salt and pepper. Add 300g self raising flour, 30g each pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Mix until you have a soft dough, you may need more flour or a splash of milk depending on the juiciness of your pumpkin.
Put on a greased baking sheet and roll out to about 2cm thick. Cut into squares and gently separate them from each other. Brush with milk and top with a little grated cheese. I used a babybel as we have run out of all other cheese!
Bake for about 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly and then put on a cooling rack. Eat warm with butter :)

Thank you for the recipe!
