  2. Combine mashed potato, egg, and sour cream in a bowl and mix. Set aside.
  3. Rub flour and butter in a large bowl until it begins to look like wet sand. Add the remaining dry ingredients and grated cheese and mix until it is evenly combined, make a well in the middle.
  4. Pour wet mixture and mix with a butter knife or a wooden spoon until it comes together and then knead lightly with your hands to form a dough.
  5. Roll out onto a lightly floured work surface to about 4cm-5cm in thickness, cut into shapes using a cookie cutter or using a knife. Transfer onto the baking tray spaced evenly.
  6. Bake for 5 minutes at 220C then turn the oven down to 180C and bake for another 20-25 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
