PEI Potato Scones

Scones served warm with butter are delicious. The mashed potato ensures a product that stays moist longer.

  • 4 tsp/20 mL baking powder
  • 1/4 cup/50 mL white sugar
  • 1/8 tsp/0.5 mL nutmeg

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3/4 cup/175 mL milk

  • Granulated sugar

Combine flours, salt, baking powder, sugar and nutmeg in large bowl. Cut in butter until mixture is the consistency of cornmeal. Stir in raisins and/or fruit. Combine potato, whole egg, yolk and milk in medium bowl. Whisk until no lumps remain. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add liquids all at once. Stir with fork to make a soft, slightly sticky dough. If necessary, add 1-2 tbsp more milk.
