Each month there will be a new recipe from our Sisters and Brothers, some with interesting stories!   If you have a recipe you would like to share, please send it to me.   





This recipe is from our Scottish friends John and Elizabeth Smith



Here is a popular Scottish dessert for Christmas that is easy and quick called Cranachan and there are many variations and names such as Cream Crowdie

Ingredients:

3 oz (half cup) coarse oatmeal
1/2 pint double cream
1 tablespoon Drambuie

Method:

Toast the oatmeal in a frying pan on high heat until lightly brown.  Whisk the cream into a soft consistency and mix in the oatmeal and Drambuie (alternatively, use a few drops vanilla essence or other flavouring of your choice).  Serve in tall glasses.
A popular variation is to mix in 6 oz (1 1/2 cups) of fresh raspberries.  Or use vanilla ice cream instead of cream.


Marzipan Dates

This is another recipe which originated in Dundee where almonds (the basis of marzipan) were sweeties (candies) are simple to make and do not involve any cooking at all!

Ingredients:

8 oz.  whole dates from which the stones have been removed
8 oz.  marzipan
4 oz.  caster  (fine granulated sugar)

Method:

Knead the marzipan until it is warm and soft.  Take a small piece of marzipan (the amount will vary on your liking) and shape it into a roll slightly shorter than the length of the date.  Open the date with a knife, insert the marzipan and close over again.  Roll the filled date in the caster (sugar) and lay it on a separate plate.  Repeat until the marzipan is finished.  Place the Marzipan Dates in small paper cases and store in an airtight container.    

These would be a great small gift for any occasion.
