Scottish Oat Cakes

Tiko took Pablo’s hat this morning. First thing when he got here – wow. Because Pablo did not look ready to play at 7 a.m. with Tiko. I kept saying, “Tiko, drop it,” “Tiko, drop it.” as Pablo chased him in a walking state around the yard. To his credit, Tiko finally came around the truck as if to play, with Pablo coming from the other side. I said, “Drop it,” once more, and he did! Good dog, Tiko!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  What’s funny is that Pablo’s hat is not a man’s sombrero, baseball hat or cool cowboy hat. In the States, we would call it a woman’s floppy hat, but it sure does work to keep the sun off him all day as he toils in the sun! So it was funny to see the white floppy hat being carried around and tossed up in the air by Tiko.

Process the nuts first, in your food processor, blender or grinder. Next, mix into a moist crust with the other ingredients.
