    Altered ingredient amounts. Wasn't sure why the recipe states 1/2lb cooked potatoes yet 60 gms of flour so I used 225 gms of potato and needed quite a healthy splash of skimmed milk to form a dough  -  15 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

    I am flipping challenged. I loved the thinness and overall crispy exterior of these, but as usual mine do not look like lovely triangles. They tasted great though.  -  15 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
