The weather was just a bit chilly last Saturday but I couldn't resist a walk in the woods behind our house. The fall canopy was so beautiful that I decided to grab my camera and set up a little impromptu dessert table. It was the perfect backdrop for a new dessert.
I was asked a few weeks ago by Walker's Shortbread if I'd like to receive some of their products for recipe development. Are you kidding me? I love shortbread! In fact, I like to say that it saved my life when I traveled through part of Scotland feeling rather ill. It was the only thing that settled my stomach.
I love the Walker's brand, and if you're not familiar with them then I must tell you, their shortbread is the best! Just read the ingredients on the side of the box: wheat flour, butter, sugar, salt. That's it folks!
Being on the cusp of the Christmas hustle and bustle, I decided to develop a festive eggnog pudding recipe and layer it between buttery shortbread crumbs. It tastes much like an eggnog pie.
