How to make Scottish Potato Scones (AKA Tattie Scones)

Potato scones, or tattie scones as they are also known, are a firm fave in this house. When travelling we get a happy warm glow when we see a tattie scone with a full breakfast instead of a hash brown.  It’s a great way to use up leftover potatoes – potatoes that are ready to go bad, or ideal if you live somewhere where you can’t buy them!

Refrigerate as soon as they are made and fry them up later in a frying pan with some oil for a crispy exterior. These can be frozen however you may have to use wax sheets as they stick to each other very easily.

Ingredients

1 pound cooked potatoes
4 ounces self-rising flour
2 ounces butter

Method

Heat a lightly greased griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat.
Mash potatoes.
Add flour, butter and salt until a stiff dough forms.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface.
Knead the dough lightly and roll out to about 1/2-inch thick.
Use a scone cutter or a mug to cut out shapes, or work freehand.
Working in batches, cook scones, turning once on the hot griddle.

When you put them in the pan they’ll look like this:
