Tattie scones

One of my all time favourites, filled with memories and nostalgia.  They really aren't worth buying - you can hardly taste the potato in them - and they are ridiculously easy to make :) They work best with left over mash.  Season your mash well when you make it, then it's ready to go next day for breakfast - literally takes five minutes to make.  Just add enough plain flour to the mash and knead it lightly, to give a soft dough. Turn out on to a floured board, flatten with hand or roll with a pin. Cut to shape - traditionally a plate was used, then the tattie scone quartered; square ones also featured. Cook on a very high girdle for a few minutes on each side until browned- I like mine well-fired as you can see from the photo. Serve warm with good butter. You'll never buy another one, I promise :)
