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 




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

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?
