Pre-prepare the pumpkin by steaming 1 cup of 1 cm cubes for 10–15 minutes, then puréeing.

Makes:  12 large biscuits
Fresh from the garden:  pumpkin
Season:  Autumn

Serves: 2

Tip: If you wanted to cut these biscuits out rather than making drop biscuits, use the minimum amount of milk. The dough will be less sticky and easier to work with. Flour your board liberally, roll out the dough to 2.5–3.0 cm thick and cut. Bake for the same amount of time.
