   *  Pumpkin scones -- Scones (pronounced with a short `o', rhymes with
   `Fonz') are a popular accompaniment to afternoon tea. They are often served
   with jam and whipped cream. In this variation the scones are flavoured with
   pumpkin. It is not a typical scone recipe.
   Pumpkin scones can be eaten in place of bread with a meal.  This recipe was
   made famous by the wife of the Premier of Queensland.  Yield:  Serves 4-6.
   *  To an Australian, a pumpkin is a large round, squat, green or blue-green
   vegetable that is orange on the inside.  There are many varieties, all of
   species Cucurbita maxima.  In North America a good substitute is acorn
   squash (Cucurbita pepo); elsewhere a butternut squash (Caryoka nuciferum)
   would be a fair substitute.
