|1/2 lb Cooked Potatoes
2 oz Flour
1/2 oz Butter
A little Milk or Buttermilk To bind
To test for the correct heat on the gridle sprinkle it with a little flour. If the flour
browns at once it is too hot; it should take a few seconds to turn colour.
Grease a gridle or heavy frying-pan. Mash the patatoes with the butter and a little milk.
Mix with a spoon. Add the salt and a little of the flour. Use the fingers until it is all
taken up and the dough is fairly stiff. Turn out on to a floured surface. Roll out to 1/4
inch thick and cut into rounds using a breakfast cup as a cutter. Place on the hot greased
gridle or frying-pan. Cook for 2 minutes util the underside is brown. Turn and repeat on
the other side. Serve piping hot, spread with butter.

Mix together all ingredients until thoroughly blended. Turn the dough onto a floured board and divide into three. Roll into a circle
