These are traditionally eaten with a fried breakfast, eggs, bacon, black pudding, Larne sausage etc....  totally delicious and very 'more-ish'....  Just the thing on cold, wet, winter Sunday mornings!

This is my Granny's recipe.

1 lb potatoes (very 'floury' textered ones work best)
1.5 oz butter
Salt/pepper to taste
4 oz (approx) plain flour

Boil potatoes in salted water, drain and mash with the butter until light and fluffy, adding salt/pepper to taste.

Work in the flour. A word of caution, only add in enough to make a stiff dough - cannot be more precise as it depends on the moisture content of the potatoes used!

Turn the mixture out onto a floured board, knead very lightly (don't handle the dough very much at all) and roll out into a square. Cut into triangles (the traditional shape) or use a 2 inch scone cutter.

Lightly oil a traditional girdle (sort of like an old-fashioned griddle, made of iron) or a good, heavy based fryingpan. Cook the scones on a medium heat for about 5 mins a side, or until they are golden brown.

Eat hot - or re-heat when you are feeling peckish!

I'm crazy about them but don't have any recipe to do at home! :(

Your recipe for the potato scones is similar to the potato cakes I make.  Usually I fry them for dinner, I also add some chopped onion in them.  MY hubby likes them real well!

Scones recipes, Emerald?

I've got loads of family recipes - drop scones, ordinary scones, bran scones, treacle scones... We Scots love our scones!

Here's the standard family recipe. Only take half an hour from thinking about it to eating them!

SCONES
8 oz plain flour
Half teaspoon salt
1 level teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
2level teaspoon cream of tartar
1.5 oz butter
1.5 oz caster sugar
1 egg beaten lightly and added to enough milk to make up a quarter of a pint of liquid

Make sure you dust the oven tray and scones with flour before baking

Sift the flour, salt, bicarb and cream of tartar. Rub in the butter and stir in sugar.
Pour the egg/milk mixture into dry ingredients - use a fork to mix quickly to a dough - don't handle too much or they will be tough! The resulting dough should be very soft, but not sticky.

Turn out and pat or roll to a half inch thickness (no less or they resemble
biscuits). Use a 2 inch cutter to cut into rounds.

Put them on the well floured (not greased) baking tray and dust the tops with
flour. Put onto the top shelf of the oven at Gas Mark 7, 320c or 425F for 10-12 minutes until risen and golden.

Leave to cool slightly, split and fill with butter and jam.

All temperatures and measurements are UK - you may have to make adjustments for wherever you live! :D[color=blue]

Catriona, I am new to this forum but have copied some of your recipes. They sound very good. Thank you for posting them.

My ancestors came to America from Scotland. In fact, my great-great-great grandfather, Norvell Robertson, was only a boy during the Revolutionary War but was present when Cornwallis surrendered. I have a copy of his memoirs. Someone in my family has traced our ancestry back to nearly 800 AD. Some day I hope to visit Scotland.

I love everything Scottish, especially the wonderful music at celticradio.net.

We recently moved to Minnesota from the beautiful Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. The Scottish influence is strong in East Tennessee, especially in the music.

I am glad I found this site!

Thanks for your kind words, it is nice to get feedback about some of my culinary posts!

I had to laugh at Barddas' comment about 'I love the smokies'....  you see, 'smokies' are a delicacy in Scotland!  Arbroath smokies are smoked haddock (sort of like kippers!) and are eaten for breakfast. :D

As a native of Edinburgh, I'd be happy to try to answer any specific questions you may have about Scottish subjects. I don't guarantee that I would know the answers off the top of my head, but I have access to a lot of reference works!

would you happen to know of a scottish dessert or something sweet and tasty that a class full of 7 year olds might like? My son is V.I. P next week and friday is the day to bring the food of our heritage. Perhaps there is such a thing as a chocolate scone?  :)

How about the tablet recipe I've posted further down this forum, or the Eyemouth Tart?

If you don't mind it being a bit more trouble to eat - then the cranachan recipe also on this forum is really good!  The only thing is you'd have to supply plates/bowls and spoons!

I've just put my family shortbread recipe onto the forum - that should answer your requirements!

I've never heard of chocolate scones - the concept would have purists turning cartwheels. :cool:
