Traditional Scottish biscuits or cookies to accompany a cup of tea. We try to eat healthily, but now and then it's nice to have a sweet treat. My Mother and I made these together when I was a child, and making them always brings happy memories. Nowadays, my Mother makes tiny versions of these as petit fours, but I make 3 inch ones ! The biscuits are always topped with icing sugar and usually have a cherry on top. using the cornflour, icing sugar and baking powder gives a light melt in the mouth texture. Take the margarine out of the fridge half an hour before you start, so that its not too hard.Sometimes I replace the cherry with hundreds and thousands ( as in the photo ) or a jelly tot pastel. I like raspberry jam for the filling, but you can use your favourite flavour.
