This recipe means so much to one of our members and it was so wonderful of Melissa to share her Mum’s Pumpkin Scones recipe with us. I am sure that she will be delighted to know that 1,000’s of thermomixers will be dolloping some jam and cream on her thermomix pumpkin scones.
“My Mum passed away 23 Dec 2005 aged 66 from Lung Cancer. Pumpkin Scones were something Mum made regularly for morning recess or a snack after school, always lathered in butter. She was a great cook, always cooked from scratch, as I do still today. She taught me and my siblings well. She was an inspiration.”
Looking for jam inspiration – then make sure you give these a go!
