The preparation of these might amuse children for an hour or so.

Cover them with melted chocolate and swirl the surface with a fork.


  • 4 oz (110 g) cold mashed potato
  • 4 oz (110 g) plain flour
  • 4 oz (110 g) rolled oats
  • 2 oz (50 g) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 oz (75 g) butter or margarine


    Mix the flour, oats, sugar and salt and rub in the butter or margarine. Knead in the mashed potato and roll out thinly on a floured board. Cut into individual biscuit shapes.

    Place on oiled baking trays and cook in a slow oven (gas mark 3/325°F/170°C) for about 20 minutes until crisp but not brown.
