Method
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Cut pumpkin into 2cm pieces.
  3. Steam pumpkin over boiling water for 10 minutes or until soft. Transfer to a bowl and cool for 10 minutes.
  4. Combine flour with the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl.
  5. Use your fingertips to rub in margarine until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  6. Mash the steamed pumpkin with a potato masher.
  7. Add the milk and egg to the pumpkin and stir to combine.
  8. Add the pumpkin mixture to the flour mixture and mix with a round blade knife until the mixture begins to hold together.
  9. Bring the dough together with your hands. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently 4-5 times or until just smooth.
  10. Shape the dough into 12 (or 24) scone shaped rounds of equal size. Place on a baking tray. Sprinkle the top with a little extra flour.
  11. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden (a skewer inserted into the scone should come out clean).
  12. Serve warm.
