Pumpkin Scones

I had some pumpkin to use up the other day, so decided to make some good old pumpkin scones.  I didn't even look around for recipes - just went straight to the famous recipe by Lady Flo Bjelke-Peterson.  These were a winner with the whole family!  (Well, technically not the baby since he can't eat, but I'm sure he'd love them if he could!)  Perfect with butter when they're still warm out of the oven.

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

Beat together butter, sugar and salt with electric mixer.
Add egg, then pumpkin and stir in the flour.

Turn on to floured board and cut with a scone cutter.

Place in tray on top shelf of very hot oven 225 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
