Tweet Lancashire Nuts
Small, low-bake white wheatflour sweet biscuits, or scones, made to form a very open texture with the addition of cornflour, rice flour or similar. Formed into balls and flattened before baking. Served sandwiched with jam, etc. Despite the name, the receipt appears much more often in Scottish than English texts.
(The term 'Lancashire Nuts' also refers to a small-sized form of prepared coal, much used by blacksmiths.)
Original Receipt from the 'Aberdeen Journal'- Wednesday 20 October 1948
