Our next stop is Scotland. These wonderful pages were created by Wyvern of Potsdam, NY. Scotland would definitely be on my list of places I would love to see. I love the tartan samples she included and the Highland Kyloe.
The photo of the "Shepherd's Cot in Glen Nevis, Inverness-shire" opens up to reveal this poem.
The other side has a recipe for Pitcaithly Bannock, a type of shortbread.
8 oz flour
4 oz butter
2 oz caster sugar (superfine ground sugar)
1 oz chopped almonds
1 oz mixed candied peel
Set oven to 325*F or Mark 3. Grease a baking sheet. Sift flour into bowl. Add the sugar and butter and rub in to form a dough. Add the almonds and the mixed peel, making sure they are evenly distributed. Form into a thick round on a lightly floured surface and prick all over with a fork. Place on the sheet and bake for about 45-60 minutes. Allow to cool and serve sliced thinly and buttered.
