Thanks, manella, those look very interesting. I love to bake cookies, but I have never made this kind. Do you use candied cherries?
Dec. 11, 2012 2:17 pm
I use the ones in the jar,i cut them in half,but i don't see why you couldn't use candide cherries.Thanks for asking.

I have saved your recipe Manella for scotch cookies. They look good for the holiday season.
Dec. 11, 2012 2:20 pm
Thanks, I'm definitely going to try these. They look so easy, and I'm sure they're pretty.

I have made these cookies and they are very, very good. And they do taste wonderful frozen as well. I need to make more as I cut the recipe in half and they are just about gone. Thanks again, manella for sharing!!

Hi Manella. I just checked out your recipe. It is exactly identical to my Grandmother's Whipped Shortbread recipe - cherry on top and everything!! I make these every year and they truly melt in your mouth!!! I've never heard them called 'scotch' cookies before. No matter the name, they are great cookies.

Forgot to add - they taste better if you store them for a week. Weird, I know. But these cookies age well. I make mine at the beginning of December and then freeze them. They age in the freezer if my husband doesn't get to the them first. Apparently they taste good frozen too!

Hi RedApple,i have had this recipe for 38 years,make them every year.One of my favoite cookie's.
Dec. 11, 2012 2:55 pm
I have been hearing a lot of good things about these cookies Manella. I plan to make them this week for our road trip over Christmas. Gotta have road cookies...
Dec. 11, 2012 2:56 pm
sorry manella- i already "stole" the recipe- hope to make them this week:-)
Dec. 11, 2012 2:56 pm
Thanks for the tip Redapple... I love frozen cookies :)
Dec. 11, 2012 2:58 pm
RedApple,they are good frozen.I always put them in the freezer,so i don't eat them,but that doesn't work.
Dec. 11, 2012 2:59 pm
Naan,they make a good travel cooke,just have something to wash them down with.Have a great trip.

Nanny hope you enjoy them.

Naan - they can be a bit crumbly in car. I'd pack them frozen. They go great with a nice cup of tea but that might not happen in the car? Manella - my Grandmother had made them as long as I can remember. I am sure for at least 38 years if not longer. She had family from Nova Scotia too so maybe she got it from there?! TO fancy it up at Christmas I whip them up nice and fluffy in my kitchenaid and then put the batter in a large pastry bag with a big star tip and squeeze out little flower drops of batter. I also use the jarred cherries just chopped up and place a piece right in the middle of the flower. It goes surprisingly quick to fill a tray of cookies this way. Keep in mind these cookies do not spread when baking so you don't have to leave a lot of room between cookies on the sheet.

Thanks Manella. We're driving across the country with a new baby and an old dog... it's going to take a lot more than cookies to get us through it but these will be a good start ;)
Dec. 11, 2012 3:11 pm
Thanks RedApple, but no crumbs if you eat them whole :) And there will be tea; this ex-Canuck cannot start the day without her English Breakfast. I'll be packing a thermos for sure.
Dec. 11, 2012 3:16 pm
Spoken like a true Canuck! I love your theory on no crumbs. I'm going to give that a try! I've had several 10 hour long car trips with new babies and toddlers. You're a brave girl to be going cross country. I hope you have great weather and a great little traveller! (May I suggest packing a bottle of infant benedryl? Maybe not ethical but completely harmless if used according to the directions. Being stuck in the small confines of a car with a screaming child hour after hour is not easy. A little induced sleep is sometimes helpful!)
Dec. 11, 2012 3:24 pm
Wow, you are just full of lifesavers today! Thankfully she's a pretty good baby and sleeps every time we are in the car, but you never know. I'll pick up a bottle for emergencies. (and I'll likely need a bottle of something else for me!)
Dec. 11, 2012 3:48 pm
Thanks for the tip about the pastry bag,RedApple,never did them that way.The benedryl is a good idea,your right not much fun if the baby is not happy.
Dec. 11, 2012 3:49 pm
Naan where are you going?
Dec. 11, 2012 3:52 pm
Where ever your going have a safe and easy trip.Merry Christmas.Naan
Dec. 11, 2012 3:56 pm
