Edinburgh Fog

Edinburgh Fog created by mersaydees

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

    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.
