Recipe by Tulip-Fairy

This was known as the traditional bridal cake for Scotland. But have used it as our Christmas Biscuit recipe for as long as I can remember. One of my Dad's favourites


  1. Mix flour and sugar in a bowl, rub in butter.
  2. Knead well to form a smooth paste.
  3. Divide into two equal parts, shape and flatten into 2 x 7" rounds, approximately 1/2 " thick.
  4. Mark top into portions, decorate edges and prick with a fork.
  5. Place on a greased baking tray.
  6. Bake for 30 mins at 160c, 325F Gas mark 3 or until pale and golden.
