More Burns Night Fun

We always enjoy the salute to the haggis but not as much as eating the haggis!

Salute to the haggis!

As always, we finished the Burns Night meal with a selection of traditional Scottish desserts including Karen’s millionare’s shortbread!  We need to find a recipe for the fruit and cream dessert.  If you have one, please share!
