Potato Scones (Old Scottish Recipe)
I give you the standard measurements in the Ingredients. The first direction is verbatim what is written on the dishtowel. I'd say it's circa 1700. Then the modern directions follow.
Have fun with this one. They are not like "scones" as we know them, but rather a thick potato pancake. I cooked mine in my new scone pan, but they would really be better cooked on a griddle.
Mash 1/2 lb. boiled potatoes, add pinch of salt. Knead in about 2 oz. flour and add 1/2 gill sweet milk. Roll out thinly on floured board, cut into scones. Bake on a hot griddle about 5 minutes, turning when half cooked. Prick with a fork.
