I can not say Walkers Shortbread without instantly craving some. As a basic rule, I rarely buy store-bought cookies. Well, except Walkers shortbread.
I love this Scottish pure butter shortbread. They are perfectly buttery, not greasy, and deliciously crunchy. They are perfect to dip in coffee, spread a little jam on top of them or dip in chocolate. And, unlike like other store bought cookies they only use 4 basic ingredients : flour, butter, sugar and salt!
These cookies are easily recognizable by the red box and the buttery aroma that drifts out as soon as you open it. I have been in love with these cookies for years, so in love that I, while visiting Scotland, went to visit the bakery Aberlour.
The Walkers story begins over a hundred years ago in 1898 when the twenty-one year old Joseph Walker opened the doors of his own bakery with a loan of £50 and the dream of making the finest shortbread in the world.
Soon after he first opened the door to the small village bakery, his fame spread and the demand for shortbread increased. Later, Joseph expanded the business by moving to a larger shop in the Speyside village of Aberlour and investing in a horse and cart to deliver his cookies further away.
A while back I received 4 boxes of cookies :
Stem Ginger Shortbread
Don’t ask me now which one is my favorite. I cannot choose one. Vanilla shortbread was the first one to disappear. In fact it was eaten long before I had the chance to take the pictures. The shortbread fingers and ginger shortbread were my coffee treat for a couple of days and the raspberry thins were beautifully sandwiched with some raspberry preserve for a mommy and me tea party one afternoon.
With Mother’s day just around the corner, the nice people at Walkers are going to send one of you the same cookies. To enter the giveawy please use the widget below or click here to enter
