How to make it:
  1. Beat together ghee, sugar and salt with electric mixer. Add egg, then pumpkin and stir in the flour. Turn onto heavily floured board(I rolled in enough flour to coat exterior & scone cutter, otherwise very wet sticky dough)and cut. Place in tray (greaseproof paper & floured)on top shelf of very hot oven 225-250c for 15-20 minutes.(my fanforced electric oven did 200c for 15 mins). Other blood types can check/convert for compliance. Best on day of baking, can freeze & thaw in fridge before reheating to serve.
