  3. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the bowl with the flour and stir until incorporated. The dough will be very sticky. Do not be tempted to add more flour.

  4. Pour everything on a generously floured surface. Sprinkle with more flour and roll out the dough into a half inch sheet. Cut the desired size using a sharp edge glass or a cookie cutter. Put the mini scones on a baking tray lined with baking paper gently removing the excess of flour.
