Petticoat tails (scottish)

Yield: 12 Servings

Measure Ingredient
8 ounces Flour
4 ounces Cornflour or Rice Flour
4 ounces Butter
4 ounces Icing Sugar
\N \N Caster Sugar for Dredging

: Set the oven to 350F/Gas 4. Grease a baking sheet. Cream the butter

and icing sugar together in a bowl. Sift in the flours and work into a smooth dough; if the dough is too dry a little water can be added to moisten. Divide into two. Roll out on a floured surface and shape into two

thin rounds. Place on the sheet and prick all over with a fork. Mark each

round into 6 triangles. Bake for about 20-25 minutes until pale golden in

colour. Sprinkle with the caster sugar while still warm. Cut into the triangles and cool on a wire rack.
