Pumpkin Scones

I consider myself incredibly lucky that a) I was one of 5 growing up, and b) our mum was a ‘stay at home mum’ for most of our childhood. She was the most incredible baker and was constantly in the kitchen whipping up something delicious to feed 5 hungry mouths. My all time favourite recipe she made though was Pumpkin Scones. She would take them out of the oven and always put them in the same green container, wrapped in a tea towel so when we would run in the door from climbing tree’s or catching tadpoles – we were outdoor kids – and see the green container sitting on the bench, it could have only meant one thing …Pumpkin Scones. I had been craving them recently, out of the blue, having not eaten said scones since I was a child and I knew it was time to try to make them myself. I gave this recipe a go over the weekend and was happy with the results. Mr M & I devoured them straight out of the oven, smothered with Jam and Cream and I have to say, the feelings of my childhood did come rushing back…
