Pumpkin Scones & Afternoon Tea:

Welcome to another delightful, 'Tuesday  Teatime In blogland'!

This week I am joining in with these tea parties;

'Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday' @ http://breathoffreshair-paperbutterfly.blogspot.com and also @ http://silkenpurse.blogspot.com

.., And also @ http://theplumedpen.blogspot.com/  for  'Tuesday Tea For Two'.

And also for  Teatime Tuesday ,  at dear Lady Katherine's which is held weekly  @ http://ladykatherineteaparlor.blogspot.com/

If the fact that I adore Tea time is not evident by the existence of
this blog, one need look no further than my repeated afternoon tea parties!
In my life there is always room for tea!     
I also very much enjoy collecting lovely antique teacups and teapots!

Isn't this the lovliest cozy Inn? ~ What a lovely place to enjoy afternoon tea!..,

Another delightful recipe for you to enjoy my friends:

Pumpkin Scones

Pumpkin gives a truly delightful taste to Scones. The Pumpkin adds a richness and moistness which is just delicious. Of course they are also that very pretty pale orange Pumpkin colour.


Two cups self raising flour
1/2 cup cooked, mashed Pumpkin
1/3 cup Sugar
2 Tblspns Butter
I Egg
1/4 tspn Salt
1/3 Cup Milk


Preheat your oven to a hot 200 degrees c
Cream the Butter and Sugar. Add the Egg, beating well. Add the mashed Pumpkin.

Sift the Flour and Salt twice and then add alternatively to the Scone mix with the Milk. You may or may not use all of the Milk. It will depend on the moistness of the Pumpkin. You should end up with a moist dough.

Knead slightly on a floured surface and then roll out to a one inch thickness. Cut out and place on your greased and floured baking tray. Brush the tops with a little Milk. Bake in the hot oven until just browned. Wrap in a tea towel after removing the Scones from the oven.

You may serve warm with *Maple and Cinnamon Butter or *Orange Marmalade Butter.

*(To make flavoured butters simply add the above ingredients according to taste to softened Butter)..,


Warmest regards from Rose ~ a.k.a./Scone Queen
