  1. Preheat oven to 375⁰F. 
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together: flour, sugar, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, lavender and salt.

  4. In a small bowl, stir until smooth eggs, cream and pumpkin puree. 
  5. Stir the pumpkin mixture into the flour until a dough forms but it still crumbly. 
  6. Gently press the dough together until it forms a flat disc. Cut dough into 8 equal wedges. At this stage, you can either bake in these pieces or shape into pumpkins. 
  7. To shape into pumpkins. Gently shape each piece into a sphere. Cut three 8 inch pieces of cooking twine. crisscross the strings over a centre point into a star formation. Place a dough ball onto the centre point. Firmly tie each piece of string so that a string creates a ridge in your dough. Trim excess ends of the string. Place onto parchment paper.
  8. Gently brush each scone with cream
  9. Bake on a tray lined with parchment paper for 20 minutes. 
  10. Allow the scones to cool. Gently remove the strings from each scone.
  11. Stick a 1 inch piece of cinnamon bark into the top of each scone for your pumpkin stem.
