Another version of the popular British/Scottish scone. Some call it bread, some call it dessert, but no matter what you call it, it is scrumptious!

How to Make POTATO SCONES

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, combine flours, salt, baking powder, 1/4 cup sugar and nutmeg. Cut in butter until mixture is the consistency of cornmeal. Stir in raisins or fruit.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine potato, whole egg, yolk, and milk. Whisk until no lumps remain. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add liquid all at once. Stir with a fork to make a soft, slightly sticky dough. If necessary add 1-2 Tbsp. more milk.
  3. Press lightly into a ball and knead gently on a floured surface about six times. Roll out dough to 1/2 inch thickness; cut into triangles. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and brush with slightly beaten egg white and sprinkle with a pinch of sugar.
  4. Bake in a preheated 450-degree oven for 13-15 minutes or until golden. Serve with butter or jam.
