Aberdeen Butteries recipe from www.walkaboutcrafts.com


makes 18

1 lb strong plain flour

½ oz fresh yeast

1 teaspoon caster sugar

8 oz butter

4 oz lard

½ pint tepid water


 1. Stir the flour into the bowl. Dissolve the sugar in the water then crumble in the yeast and mix until smooth

2. Stir the liquid into the flour to form a dough, then turn it onto a floured surface and knead the dough until smooth. Place it in a clear bowl, cover the surface with a sheet of greased polythene then leave the dough in a warm place to prove for about 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk.

3. Knock the dough back. Beat the two fats together and divide them into three portions. Roll the dough out into an oblong and dot the top two thirds with one portion of the fat. Fold the bottom third up over the middle third and the top third down over the other two thirds to seal the edges.

4. Leave to rest in a cool place for 30 minutes then repeat the process twice more, giving the dough a quarter turn each time and leaving it to rest after each rolling.

5. Divide the dough into 18 ovals and place them on greased baking trays, spacing them a little apart as they will rise. Prove them in a warm place for 30 minutes, then bake them at gas 6 / 400°F / 200°C for 20 - 25 minutes or until well risen and golden brown.
