    These pretty scones are very moist and flavourful, tasty slathered with butter, honey or jam... Great for using up leftover mashed potato.

    1. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Rub in butter until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.

    Lovely! and really easy to make, very soft and moist and delicious with jam or with something savoury - will definitely make again. I didn't need any milk but might do next time depending on the variety of potato.  -  18 Apr 2015
