I love tea biscuits and scones and am always on the lookout for something a little different. These savory scones are too die for, they are so good. The flavor, crumb and texture are perfect. This is a great use for leftover mashed potatoes and you only need a 1/2 cup of them. Try them and see for yourself, you will not be disappointed. Update 4/30/15: I just made these again I can't believe that they taste as good as they did the first time. The potatoes and shallots really add an extra depth of flavor to the biscuits. These are wonderful toasted also. Hope you will enjoy!
