Caramel Shortbread

We got some werthers original a tasty German Caramel recently and I had the idea it would be tasty added to shortbread :-) This was another fun time in the kitchen with Jasmine and I couldn't resist sharing the picture above with her foot in it. I am not the best at taking perfect pictures, its hard with a toddler as she moves the plate, closes shutters when I am trying to get light, starts eating it in seconds or I remember a smoothie she kicked over. Please forgive me for my pictures, but I try he he he 

  • 4oz butter softened
  • 2oz caster sugar
  • 5 oz flour
  • about 5 werthers original smashed up, and boy were they hard to break he he

1. cream butter and sugar
2. add flour with fork and broken pieces of caramel, then add to a baking tin, punch with fork many times and sprinkle with a little sugar, some of the holes got big as Jasmine was enjoying adding the holes :-)
3. bake in oven for 40 min at 325 until pale straw color.

Have you added anything to shortbread?
