Pratie Oaten Biscuits (Crackers)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Chocolatl

Traditional pratie oaten are little potato-oat pancakes served at breakfast. (Pratie is the Irish word for potato.) This recipe takes the dough, adds flour, and rolls it out thin to make crisp crackers. Good with cheese, lemon curd or jam. Adapted from 300 Best Potato Recipes.
