Walker's pure butter shortbread

integral to my Scottish heritage

These babies are a whopping 150 calories per ounce, so you carry something calorie dense with minimal volume in the pack. Only 4 ingredients; wheat flour, butter, sugar and salt. An ultralight backpackers dream food.

Ha, Very good point. I was just looking at these at the store. I was looking for cookies that didn't have hydrogenated oil in them and these where about it. I might try making some from scratch for some backpacking snacks.

I have been eating these shortbreads for many years and now they are a part of my staple diet when hiking.
