Shortbread is a traditional Scottish biscuit usually made from one part white sugar, two parts butter, and three parts plain wheat flour. Other ingredients like ground rice or cornflour are sometimes added to alter the texture. Modern recipes also often deviate from the original by splitting the sugar into equal parts granulated and icing sugar and many add a portion of salt. Unlike many other biscuits and baked goods, shortbread does not contain any leavening, such as baking powder or baking soda. Walker’s Shortbread Fingers are widely associated with Christmas and Hogmanay festivities in Scotland, and some Scottish brands are exported around the world.
Walkers Shortbread Fingers History
Walkers Scottish Biscuits are baked in the secluded village of Aberlour, Speyside, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. These biscuits are produced to traditional recipes which have been handed down through generations of the Walker Family. Walkers personally guarantee that this product is made using only the finest ingredients possible to obtain and contains no artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives.
Throughout the generations, Shortbread has been baked with a great deal of skill and pride in many Scottish homes using the plentiful supply of natural local ingredients- butter, sugar and wheat flour. Thus, shortbread was created with a marvellous, buttery taste and a soft, crumbly texture. Traditionally, these delicious Walker’s Shortbread Fingers were lightly sprinkled with sugar to further enhance its appeal. Walkers Homebake recipe shortbread is an excellent example of the style of shortbread baked in the home, retaining the same soft, crumbly texture and rich buttery taste.
