Potluck preview... plus some Scottish Shortbread!

I've been in the kitchen baking some goodies for tomorrow's Yahoo! Scottish Vegans group potluck. There are mini crusty sesame rolls (I used the French Baguette recipe from Garden Of Vegan, divided it into roll sized pieces, and rolled them in sesame seeds), Blueberry Jam Donut cupcakes(the Jelly Donut cupcake recipe from Veganomicon, using Hartley's Blueberry jam) and some shortbread, using a recipe I experimented with....

Scottish Shortbread

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup icing sugar
1/2 cup margarine
1 tsp vanilla essence
tiny drop of almond essence
pinch of salt

-combine ingredients into a dough
-press dough into a greased9x9 sandwich tin
-using a knife, mark into bars so it's easy to break later, and using a chopstick or skewer, press a pattern of dots into shortbread(see photo).
-bake at 200C for 10-12 mins, then leave to cool before serving
