My sister-in-law Renee, and her two daughters, Michelle & Becky, are visiting us from Scotland. Thus far, they have been to the beach, and experienced the tropical heat that is New Orleans during the summer, including visiting the zoo, aquarium, Pancho’s(Renee & my husband heart Pancho’s), the French Quarter, and ridden the streetcar.
Before their arrival, Renee and the girls also said they wanted to spend a day with me in my kitchen, cooking & baking. So, on Thursday, we had a marathon cooking session which included making dirty rice, fried eggplant, cookie pizza, and empire biscuits, a Scottish
cookie biscuit, and a favorite of my husband. Never having eaten or baked these before, I searched around a bit, and found today’s recipe on Recipezaar. My husband and the girls said it was pretty close to those from Scotland. It’s a simple recipe which results in a lovely little treat.
