Make A Walkers Shortbread “Outlander” Inspired Castle

Walkers Shortbread is partnering with the hit Starz shows, Outlander for the holiday season, and tapped a baker, Steve and Lisa Marionan of Sweet Lisa’s in Cos Cob, Connecticut to recreate an Outlander castle using shortbread… a “shortbread house,” if you will (the new gingerbread house!)


Starz Outlander April 4 2016


We are obsessed with the Outlander series in our house. The love of a true Scot (Jamie Fraser) and Claire Randall (Sassenach), who is torn between her husband back in 1945 and her newfound love with Jamie in 1743, is a saga for the ages. Outlander is based on the books by Diana Gabaldon. In April of 2016 the second season will air and we can’t wait!
