Gaylea Bliss-ful Review

Canadians have come to love shortbread as a classic holiday tradition, yet they are always looking for new, delicious and easy recipes for their holiday dessert trays. To provide Canadians with new ideas, Gay Lea Foods, the shortbread expert, has two new recipes that are sure to add to the joy of the holiday season.

Banana Coconut Cream Shortbread Stack – Bring the retro back to your kitchen with these sensational holiday cookies.

Layers of shortbread, filled with blissful custard and bananas, make this a delight your guests will love.

Chipotle & White Cheddar Shortbread Cracker– A twist on the classic shortbread cookie, this savoury treat with a spicy kick is something both men and women alike will be excited to prepare and serve. These piquant shortbread crackers are easyto make, slice and bake and are a delicious accompaniment for wine or beer.

When I was contacted by Gay Lea in regard to their shortbread recipes, I read over the recipe for the Banana Coconut Cream Shortbread Stack and couldn’t wait to try making them! I love bananas and coconut and the idea of combining them with shortbread sounded absolutely heavenly! Though I haven’t made shortbread in awhile, I was thrilled to say that they turned out incredibly well! They looked great, tasted great and were relatively easy to make! I think that using Gay Lea butter when making my shortbreads made a huge difference – you can taste the difference when using butter and Gay Lea is always the best choice!

My parents always purchased Gay Lea products (and still do) and I continued this tradition with my family! I love Gay Lea products – I find that they are consistently high quality products that taste great and are Canadian!

*I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a gift card to purchase Gay Lea products to make my shortbreads for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.*
