Caribbean Scones Recipe

Created by West Indians living in England, these are scrumptious.

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Grease a baking sheet; set aside. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a medium-size bowl; stir in sugar. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix potatoes and 1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter with a fork. Add dry ingredients and mix to form a soft dough. Turn out onto floured surface. Roll out with a floured rolling pin or pat dough with your hands to make a round about 1/2-inch thick. Cut into rounds with a 2-inch fluted or plain cookie cutter. Place 1 to 1 1/2 inches apart on baking sheet; brush tops with remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter. Bake about 20 minutes or until light brown. Split and serve warm with butter and honey. Makes about 10 scones.
