Pumpkin & Cheese Scones with Fireflame Chilli Jam

This recipe was created for us by Quickes Cheese and was originally posted on their website here.

These delicious autumnal scones are the perfect treat for afternoon tea on Halloween. Serve while they are still warm from the oven and top with Extra Mature Cheddar and a generous dollop of Fireflame Chilli Jam.



  1. Prepare the pumpkin by cooking in salted water for 10 mins until soft. Drain then mash and set aside to cool.

  3. Put the sifted flour and baking powder into a bowl with the butter, using your fingertips, rub together and combine to a breadcrumb consistency.  
  4. Using a fork mix the cold mashed pumpkin with the flour and butter mixture 
  5. Then combine with the grated cheese, mustard and chopped thyme 
  6. Slowly add the milk, making a dough consistency.  
  7. Knead the dough lightly on a floured surface 
  8. Form the dough into a ball and roll out until 3cm thick 
  9. Using a flower cutter, cut out the scones and place on an oiled baking tray.
  10. Brush the tops with little bit of milk.  
  11. Bake for 10 minutes until golden and risen.
