I wanted to make something heart shaped and these seemed an easy option
Nothing says love like a Tattie Scone
OK, maybe not,
But wait until I tell you this little story about Tattie Scones
I personally have tried a Tattie Scone only a few times in my life but
I know someone who got a Tattie Scone every Friday for years and was so overindulged to the point of not wanting anymore Tattie Scones, ever
My father in law used to visit his mum every Friday.
Every Friday, waiting for him was the fore mentioned Tattie Scone, every Friday it was the same, but eventually he was not able to stomach those Tattie Scones anymore.
But did he ever say to is mum he didn't want a Tattie Scone?
He just smiled and ate it.
Now that's love.
Not wanting to hurt someones feelings
She obviously thought he loved them, in fact I'm sure at one point he did, but he was done with the Tattie Scone and its Friday appearance
It's been a family joke for years, something we all smile about, and chuckle about from time to time
Gran is no longer with us, I bet my father in law would love to go around on a Friday and be offered a Tattie Scone and a cup of tea
So Tattie Scones or Potato Scones are really delicious if you don't overindulge
