Caramel Shortbread

 

 

 I love making desserts…..pastries….theme cakes…..it’s like therapy for me.

I am not saying that I am a big pastry chef….not at all, but I love to learn as I go….I love challenge….I love creating….I love not knowing the result…..call me crazy.

That is probably why I never really got into baking squares and bars…..especially following cookbooks and recipes…..till last Christmas.

Few months ago somebody bought me Company’s Coming – 150 Delicious Squares cookbook.

I figured…..”what the hey”…..and I made a list of few interesting squares and bars for my Christmas baking list.

It’s like a new world opened up to me…..baking squares is so quick…..they are yummy…..people love them….and don’t even get me started on how much time I have saved this Christmas.

One of the recipes that made it on my list was CARAMEL SHORTBREAD…..a big hit with the party crowd.

It was so popular that I had to make it last weekend as well…..

    Bibi – These look delicious! We are in the middle of a snowing stay home night, and I would love to make them. I am not an expert on making caramel and am wondering if there is anything I can use to substitute the clear gelatin? If not, I will wait til I can get to the store!
