Notes

I got this recipe from my friend, Stephanie. I had a cookie exchange at my house around Christmas last year, and she brought these. She had recently been to Scotland, and this recipe was one that she found in all the cafes and coffeehouses over there. The recipe is measured by weight rather than volume.
