Place a slice in center of pan then overlap slices in circle around center slice, forming a flower pattern.  Continue overlapping around so they are even in thickness to the top.  Sprinkle a touch more of salt and pepper.  Place a piece of parchment on top and weigh it down with a pan.

Let cook for 45 minutes, then remove the pan and parchment, and let cook 15 minutes more till browned and all potatoes are tender.

To serve cut into wedges.
