Makes 2 circles each with 4 quarters.
Add salt and butter, then work in enough flour to make a pliable dough. Divide the dough in two and roll out on a floured surface to form two circles 22 cm (9 in) in diameter and 5 mm (¼ in) in thickness.
Cut each circle into quarters and bake on a hot griddle or pan for about 5 minutes or until browned on both sides. Some people like to grease the baking surface, while others prefer a light dusting of flour for a drier effect.
Commercial recipes tend to use potato flour/flakes instead of mashed potato and have little to no fat. They are traditionally sold as thin rectangular slices in packs of four.
