I was going through an old box of recipes I have and came across this. I totally forgotten about it. These are very tasty, and not very difficult to make.

Aberdeen Rowies

Rowies or "Butteries" are a bit like French croisants but more salty than sweet.

400g/ 14 oz plain flour

25g/ 1oz yeast

lukewarm water

115g/4 oz lard

2 tsp salt

3 tsp sugar


Sift flour into a warmed basin. Cream sugar and yeast in a cup and mix with a little luke

warm water. Pour onto flour and mix well adding sufficient warm water to form a rather

firm dough. Cover and leave in a warm place for 45 minutes. Roll out, sprinkle on the salt,

then place lard onto the dough in walnut sized pieces and fold as for puff pastry. Roll out

(not too thinly), cut into small squares and turn in the corners. Cover and leave to rise for

a further 45 minutes. Put a knob of butter on each buttery and bake for approximately 20

minutes at 230C/ 450F/ Gas 8 until lightly browned.

Some men are drawn to oceans, they cannot breathe unless the air is scented with a salty mist. Others are drawn to land that is flat, and the air is sullen and is leaden as August. My people were drawn to mountains- Earl Hamner Jr.
