About this recipe: 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.

  3. Gently pat or roll dough into a 23cm circle about 2cm thick. Cut into 10-12 wedges. Separate wedges and place on an ungreased baking tray. Bake at 200 C / Gas 6 for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.

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
