Let's do a Scottish Shortbread and Other Tasty Treats Cookbook...

Last week at the Oak Mountain Highland Games near Pelham, Alabama, I was sampling some delicious shortbread...and the chef was telling me about his unique recipes...and I had an idea!

Why not have our Family Tree readers send us their favorite shortbread recipes.. and other favorite Scottish treat recipe? And when folks submit their recipes...send along a batch of the goodies for Scottish Weekend 2003.

If we work this out so that folks will send us shortbread during December and January and February.. and if they will send their culinary masterpieces in airtight tins...we can serve all of the mouth-watering goodies at Scottish Weekend!

Thinking more about it on the way home, I thought, "Wouldn't it be fun if everyone would design their own page?" This could be very easy. Just write your recipe...put your photograph or other favorite photo of things Scottish...or a design you draw or have your grandbaby draw...or a copy of the recipe in your grandmother's handwriting (COPIES, please!). Make your page the size of the border around this article...and we're in business! We'll even be able to do some in, if your page just cries out for color...we can do it.

The folks at Caberdance - creators of MacBubba - are going to design our cookbook covers for us - and we'll have Caberdance coupons in the cookbook, too!

If you send along a batch of treats and a recipe page, be sure and write the story of your recipe too! And, we'll sell you a cookbook for half the price when they're done!

Otherwise, we'll make them available for a reasonable price (We're still figuring and scratching our heads on this part.)

So if you think this will be fun...get started now! We need recipe pages and batches by 1 February 2003, please or sooner as long as the treats will keep.

Mail them to Tasty Treats, Odom Library, PO Box 2828, Moultrie GA 31776-2828. You may also use FedEx or UPS at 204 5th St. SE, Moultrie, GA 31768.
