Let's start the week off with a sweet note, shall we?
Yeah.. I know, I post a baking/food recipe about once a year (and for some reason it tends to be shortbreads)... but this is my mmmmmmmmarvelously delicious delight of late, so I'm sharing it.
I sure hope you're all done with the New Years diets, this treat is not for the calorie counting kind. I wouldn't recommend it if your diabetic either... it's basically a mash up of all things sweet and sugary!
You may recall I like my recipes stupid easy and simple to execute, so you'll see why this recipe is a winner with me:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup icing sugar
1/2 cup cold butter.
Stir flour with icing sugar, grate the cold butter in, blend together (I use my hands) and press in to a 9x9" baking dish.
This is your shortbread base. Bake at 350. for 20mins... or until golden. Let cool.
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup toffee bits/chips
1/2 cup white chips
1/2 cup chocolate chips.
Layer each of these over the shortbread base. Then pour an even coat of Sweetened Condensed Milk(300ml) over the top.
Bake at 350. for another 20-30 mins.. until golden again!
Best if shared with friends.. over a tall glass of cold milk.
I tend to cut mine up in to bite size cubes and stick them in the freezer for a daily pop of sweetness!
Have a delicious day friends,
