November nibbles

Not strictly November as these are Halloween Pumpkin Scones, but I'm a working Mum so inevitably running a little late!

Boil 200g pumpkin flesh until soft, then mash and allow to cool.
Mix 225g self-raising flour and 40g butter together by hand.
Add 1tsp baking powder, a hnadful of mature grated cheddar and some chopped corriander. Mix well by hand.
When cold, mix the mashed pumpkin into the mix, folding in with a knife. The pumpkin is quite moist so you probably wont need any milk to add, although if you want, add some to allow the dough to become quite gloopy. Kneed well.

Flour the worksurface and flatten the dough until about 3cm thick, then cut out and place on a greased baking tray. Brush with milk.

Cook at 200c until they look golden, risen and done.

Gobble gobble gobble. Oh rats - the Christmas turkey is coming....
