These Pumpkin & Cheese Scones are a delicious savory treat which combine flour and buttermilk with cream, rosemary and Cheddar cheese to make a super tasty snack. I love to serve these scones warm with cheese or slathered with salted butter.

Start by combining flour, salt, and sugar before grating butter into the mixture. Rub all ingredients together until fully combined. In a small jug, mix together buttermilk, pumpkin, and cheese. Combine wet ingredients with the dry. Once the mixture comes together, flatten to a thickness of 1 inch. Sprinkle the top with flour and use a cookie cutter to cut out circles. Bake in the oven and serve warm with sour cream or salted butter.
