From OldFashionedLiving.com. These are a potato pancake not a scone: very small amount of flour, no leavening, no milk or cream. Perhaps Irish "scones" are something entirely different than what I am accustomed to. Regardless-enjoy your Irish "Scone" Pancakes! PS you can most certainly use fresh herbs in place of the dried!
Combine all ingredients (*except* for the oil/butter used for frying) in a large mixing bowl.
Heat up a skillet (cast iron this time) on medium heat. Add oil and/or butter and melt; about 1-2 tablespoons.
Shape the potato mixture into patties. Lightly dust the potato pancakes with flour. Fry until golden brown; approximately 5 minutes. Turn over, lightly dust with more flour and cook another 5 minutes. Do not crowd the potatoes when frying. Cook in batches.
Serve the Irish "scone" pancakes with sour cream on the side, if desired.
