Homemade Butteries

Homemade Butteries I wonder how many of you have actually heard of butteries? These are a very Scottish bake and go by various names – Aberdeen Butteries, Rowies, Aberdeen Rolls – but I have grown up knowing them simply as butteries and that’s what I’m sticking with.

And what are butteries? Well they originated in Aberdeen unsurprisingly and are common place on the north east of Scotland. They are a laminated yeast dough – which means there are layers upon layers of dough all sandwiched with butter in between, just like a croissant is.
