    Crafty Lady 13's Note:

    The excellent cheese flavor of these biscuit-like scones goes so well with soups and chilies. It's also a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. Best served warm.

      Yum! These are so good, and a great way to use leftover mashed potatoes. As is, the recipe is wonderful and would be a great addition to breakfast, soup, chili, whatever. I made a couple of minor changes, using buttermilk instead of milk and adding cut up breakfast sausage to replicate a similar King Arthur recipe I made the other day. Since I always have leftover mashed potatoes in the freezer, this just became my go to recipe! Love that the potatoes keep the scones tender on the inside but they're still crispy on the outside. Doubled the recipe, patted on parchment covered baking sheet into a rectangle, then separated into 12 squares. Baked 23 minutes. These heat up really well, too. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      I love this quick and easy to make scone recipe Crafty Lady. The scones were delicious. Crisp and crunchy on the outside, soft and tender on the inside. The flavor is outstanding, you can taste the potato and the cheese. I wouldn't change a thing, they were lovely served warm from the oven and equally as tasty toasted. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

      This was a great recipe as an aternative to plain potato on shepard's pie. I made the dough using gf flour and cut into rounds to top the mince in a cobbler style. Very tasty and will certainly make again,I might add some spring onion or bacon next time the possible variations are endless.
      Thank you for sharing.
