Potato Shortbread Recipe



We saw this old plate at the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley, near Birmingham and below is the potato shortbread recipe. We think that this may be an old war time rationing recipe from World War Two from when ingredients were scarce.



Plate Potato Shortbread Recipe



Cream 3oz margarine and 2 oz sugar.

Add 4oz warm mashed potato, beat well, then add 2oz rice flour, salt and almond flavouring.

With hands, lightly press the flour into the mixture.

Roll out & bake. We baked ours at 180c for 25 minutes. We sprinkled caster sugar on top.
