    300g Scottish Potatoes

    65g Plain Flour

    50g Scottish Butter

    Salt and White Pepper

    A little Rapeseed Oil


    Peel and halve the potatoes before placing in a pan of salted water to boil. Once tender, drain, mash with the butter and season with a little pepper.

    Next, add the flour and mix until you have a pliable dough. Now turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll to the depth of a pound coin.

    Cut into 20cm circles then cut these into quarters and prick with a fork.

    Heat a heavy frying pan and brush with oil. Now fry the pieces of dough for 2-3 minutes on each side until lightly browned.
