Walkers Shortbread Captures the Warmth and Spirit of the Holidays with Beloved Traditional Delicacies

(EMAILWIRE.COM, October 27, 2009 ) HAUPPAUGE, NEW YORK – Whether you are planning to entertain on a grand scale during the holidays or enjoy a smaller gathering of family and friends, Walkers Shortbread's luxury festive range captures the warmth and spirit of the season. The company is famous for using only the finest wholesome ingredients, so you can be confident that you are serving - and giving - the very best!

As far back as the 17th century, shortbread was considered an expensive luxury and a treat reserved for special celebrations, including Christmas and New Year's. Walkers Shortbread still still adds that same elegant, traditional touch to the holidays, a wonderful time to share the bakery's specialties that draw on the time-honored original recipe of Walkers' founder, Joseph Walker. Everyone in your family will love the crunchy, melt-in-the-mouth taste of Walkers. Connoisseurs recommend pairing a dry Champagne with the rich, buttery flavor of the cookie. Of course it will always be a perfect complement to coffee and tea.

Perhaps no other baked delicacy embodies the taste of the holiday season as much as Walkers Mincemeat Tarts. Made to a traditional recipe, the succulent blend of traditional mincemeat ingredients (sugar, apple, currants, sultanas and candied citrus peels) combines with a light short crust pastry to create the definitive taste of Christmas. Traditionally served warm with fresh cream, crème fraîche, ice cream, custard or brandy butter.

Walkers' buttery and delicious Festive Shapes cookies have become one of the most popular seasonal shortbread treats. The cookies are in the nostalgic shapes of Christmas trees, Santa faces, stars and bells. They are available in a 6.2 oz size at $5.99, a 12.3 oz carton at $10.99 as well as a 16.2 oz octagonal tin at $28.99. The lid of the tin showcases a charming old-fashioned painting of children building a snowman. To get that home baked taste, warm and fresh from the oven, just place the cookies in a microwave for 25-30 seconds before serving. They perfectly complement your own plate of homemade cookies.

The holidays are a great time to try out recipes and create new holiday traditions. Walkers Finger Dips are a fun, easy dessert to make and friends and family will be eager to join in the festive creativity. Display the finished product on a plate with your own home baked cookies for an impressive holiday plate.
