Pumpkin scones are perhaps the most Aussie scone of all, made famous by Lady Flo Bjelke-Petersen, wife of a Queensland Premier. Use leftover roast pumpkin if you have some (you’ll need about 1 cup mashed), in which case you may need to add a splash more milk. These pretty orange pumpkin scones are delicious with butter or crème fraîche and also make an excellent accompaniment to soup. With soup or alone, I love a glass of hazelnutty Sanchez Romate Olvidado amontillado with these scones.
