These are not a light fluffy scone like the normal english scone, but like their english cousins they are really better eaten fresh warm with butter melting on them.
3 cups of leftover mashed potato (I made a lot for Christmas dinner)
3/4 cup of white flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt.
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl with a fork.
Then using your hands form a dough it should not be too dry but also not sticky. Spread out on the counter, press out until it is about 1/2 inch thick and cut with a cookie cutter into the desired shape. (my mother always made round so I did too).
Put on a cookie sheet and bake in a 350 oven for 1/2 hour.
They are wonderful straight from the oven with butter melting on them.
