NOTES: * Pumpkin scones -- Scones (pronounced with a short `o, rhymes with `Fonz) are a popular accompaniment to afternoon tea. They are often served with jam and whipped cream. In this variation the scones are flavoured with pumpkin. It is not a typical scone recipe. Pumpkin scones can be eaten in place of bread with a meal. This recipe was made famous by the wife of the Premier of Queensland. Yield: Serves 4-6. * To an Australian, a pumpkin is a large round, squat, green or blue-green vegetable that is orange on the inside. There are many varieties, all of species Cucurbita maxima. In North America a good substitute is acorn squash (Cucurbita pepo); elsewhere a butternut squash (Caryoka nuciferum) would be a fair substitute. : Difficulty: easy. : Time: 15 minutes preparation, 15 minutes baking. : Precision: approximate measurement OK. : firstname.lastname@example.org (Bob Kummerfeld) : Dept of Computer Science, : University of Sydney, Australia. : Copyright (C) 1986 USENET Community Trust
