The Claim’s Christmas Cookie Platters
We have chosen our best and most beautiful Christmas cookies for these platters.
Queen’s shortbread – made with high quality, high fat butter – the traditional Scottish style cookie is made with a recipe from the kitchens of Buckingham Palace and the quality reflects that…you have to try them to believe how good they are.
Linzer cookies – hazelnut cookies sandwiching raspberry jelly – beautiful AND delicious
Whipped shortbread – soft and buttery and melt in your mouth
Cinnamon palmiers – delicious buttery puff pastry baked with sugar until crisp then dipped in chocolate
Romais – piped shortbread with a caramel nut centre – over the top!
Amarettis – a smaller version of the ones we sell all year – meringues sandwiching buttercream
Sampler (14 pieces) – $21
Small (32 pieces)-$45
Large (50 pieces)-$70

Italian for “strong bread”. This is a traditional Christmas treat that is a cross between a nutty fruitcake and a candy with just a hint of pepper. Sensational!
