Personal Notes:
This is a recipe found in Gram Helenís recipe box from Grampa Jim's grandmother in St Andrews, Scotland back in the late 1800s.†I now make it at least 4-5 times a year and every time I do, I think of Great-Great-Granny Euphemia Summers Peatie.

I also take the dough and make it into a log and freeze for 30 minutes. Then cut into slices and bake. This make a much more uniform cookie than the traditional Scottish way from the 1800s.
