These Scottish potato scones are not your typical fluffy tea biscuits; they're more like potato-based flatbread. Use floury baking potatoes rather than all-purpose or new potatoes. Tattie scones are fantastic served hot with butter to accompany chowder, or cold, spread with jam, as part of a breakfast fry-up.

In saucepan of boiling salted water, cook potatoes until tender, 20 to 25 minutes; drain.

In large bowl, rice or mash potatoes. Mix in butter, baking powder and salt; let cool. Mix in flour, in 2 additions, until dough is no longer sticky.

Turn out onto lightly floured surface; knead until dough comes together, 10 to 12 times. Divide dough into 6 pieces.

Roll out each into scant 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick round, sprinkling with additional flour if necessary to prevent sticking. Cut each round into quarters.

Heat griddle or heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat until very hot but not smoking. In batches, cook scones on dry griddle, turning once, until golden brown and slightly puffed, 4 to 6 minutes.
