I much enjoy a piece of shortbread with my coffee at 11.00 am. Walkers are one of the main manufacturers of Scottish Shortbread. This is their main bakehouse in Speyside.
Shortbread is a type of biscuit which is traditionally made from one part white sugar, two parts butter, and three parts oatmeal (although plain white flour is common today). Shortbread is so named because of its crumbly texture (from an old meaning of the word short). The cause of this texture is its high fat content, provided by the butter.
