Pumpkin Scones

My partner was talking about pumpkin scones and he was shocked to discover that I hadn't tried them. They are an Australian tradition I am told :).
So I got a lovely treat, my man made me pumpkin scones, they were very very yummy. I thought I would share the recipe, so you can try them too:
