    Queen Dana's Note:

    Edinburgh used to be known as "Auld Reekie" (Old Smokie) in the days of coal fires - Robert Louis Stevenson, who was a sickly child, used to complain about it in the 19th century. Here is a recipe for a rich, sweet dessert which recalls those days. The original recipe used almond flavoured "ratafia" biscuits/cookies but as these are not easily available, almond flavoured cookies or macaroon biscuits or similar can be used. recipe from rampantscotland.com

      The cream should be whipped until it is stiff and the sugar added to your own preference. Crush the macaroon biscuits and mix well with the cream. Add a few drops of almond essence and Drambuie liqueur (or rum, whisky or brandy) to taste. Serve well chilled as a luxury dessert.

      Different and delectable! Made as directed. I think this could easily serve 4 to 6 as it's quite rich; my photo shows less than half of the batch. Thanks, Queen Dana! Made for the Unrulies Under the Influence, ZWT6.
