Tip

My original recipe said to bake for 15 mins, but I needed to do for quite a bit longer, I like my Butteries quite golden brown in colour, but some prefer them much paler, so 15-20 mins would be fine. 

Butteries are a traditional snack or breakfast roll made in and around the Aberdeen area of Scotland. My parents are both from Aberdeenshire & I spent many long holidays staying with my grandparents in Aberdeenshire. I loved the local Butteries and we would take lots home to London to freeze and save for  treats.  Now I live "Down Under" & have a magic Thermomix I decided I would have a go at making some myself , as not much chance of anyone being able to smuggle me some over. This was my first attempt, but I was very pleased with the result.

    There's were great because I rolled them & lathered them in the fat & rested & repeated over & over. As good as the ones I've had in Aberdeen many times. However without this step, as my Aberdonian husband did, they came out too dense & more like bread! But thanks the ingredients make a perfect mixture!
