Yes, Outlander is a staggeringly gut-wretching, time-traversing period drama with a focus on female agency, but it’s also really damn sexy. Fans of the show are well aware, and it’s part of what made the adaptation of Diana Gabaldon’s novels such a hit for Starz. But sometimes viewers need a release from all of that sweaty, steamy tension, which is why we recommend biting down into a buttery Walkers shortbread cookie, made near the Scottish Highlands that Outlander calls home.


We recently received a few boxes of these delicious, Outlander-themed shortbreads at The A.V. Club offices, and we wanted to share the wealth. If you’d like to receive a box to snack on for nourishment during all of the bodice-ripping excitement of Outlander’s second season, simply send an email to with the subject line “Shortbread.” Be sure to include your name and mailing address in the body of the email. U.S. entrants only. On Tuesday, April 19, we’ll select two winners from our eligible entires who will be notified via email.
