Instant Scotch Cream Add to ...

My Scottish family frequently makes this easy dessert. Use a Scotch of your choice but blended works very well. If you have just made marmalade, this is a perfect way to use it. Buy a good quality Scottish shortbread for the best results. Save a few shortbread crumbs to sprinkle on top.
