You are driving me crazy with all those wonderful Scottish recipes. Do you know what treacle is in the States? Is it molasses?

I love gingerbread, I'm still a kid at heart because I still buy gingerbread men! Especially when they use smarties for the eyes and buttons! Yes I do eat the smarties first! Then I bite the man's head off! Guess I'll never grow up! I am no good at cooking sadly, can't cook, won't cook! Thanks for sharing your recipes, Mrs Beaton x
