"Probably the best food you can buy in a box." ~The New York Times~
If you read my previous post, you know how much I love Walkers Shortbread. These cookies are buttery and rich and contain the same simple ingredients that are in homemade shortbread recipes: flour, sugar, butter, & salt. That's it--no additives or preservatives. Simply the best. Did I mention butter? Oh my goodness, these are deliciously buttery.
Walkers is a Scottish company that began making this same recipe in a family kitchen in 1898. Today the company is run by 3rd and 4th generation Walkers. There's something heartwarming about an enduring family-run company with a story. Check out their website for more details about their history and products. You'll also find recipes there.
Just in case you missed my post with an easy recipe featuring these cookies, you can check it out here:
When I was writing that post, it occurred to me that not everyone has yet discovered Walkers Shortbread. That is just a crying shame. I love having these cookies on hand for snacking and for a quick way to make some easy, fancy-looking cookies for tea time. So, I contacted the Walkers U.S. office and asked them if they'd be willing to sponsor a Giveaway for my readers at The Yummy Life. They responded immediately (I love people who get back to me quickly!), and by the end of the day we had arranged all of the details for this Giveaway. Walkers is also going to include my dipped cookie recipes on their website. Yay!
3 lucky Yummy readers will winone of these Royal Wedding Limited Edition tins filled with an assortment of delicious Walkers Shortbread--a $20 value! In addition to the centerpiece engagement photo of Will and Kate, the tin will feature images of the Westminster Abbey and Clarence House, which will be their new London home.
