Potato Scones Recipe

About 38 years ago a farmers wife gave me this recipe. She used to make them often at breakfast time for when the shearers came for the shearing season and they were always a big hit. I loved them so had to get the recipe so I could make them for myself. I am sure you will love these as much as I do once you have tried them. They are very easy to make and taste yummy with a small dob of butter on top while still hot.


30g butter (do not use margarine)
125g (4 oz) SR flour
250g potatoes - cooked and mashed
1/2 teaspoon salt
ground black pepper
small amount of milk
extra butter for frying


Sift flour and salt into a bowl. Add the pepper.
Rub the butter into flour with finger tips.
Add the mashed potatoes with enough mild to make a stiff dough.
Turn out onto floured surface and roll out to about 1/4 inch thick.
Cut into rounds with a scone cutter.
Place extra butter in heavy based pan and cook for approximately three minutes on each side.
Serve hot, topped with a small glob of butter.
