LADY FLO’S PUMPKIN SCONES

Recipe four in Scone Week is an Australian classic.  Lady Flo was a politician in her own right and wife of Queensland Premier Joh Bjelke-Petersen.  He was a controversial leader, but she was a Senator for 12 years who fought for women’s rights and recognition and at the same time didn’t see anything wrong with a politician who could bake pumpkin scones.  She published a cookbook and is still going strong at 96 – one of Mum’s generation.
