A little treat

Even though I am losing weight, getting on for 5 stones since Feb 08, I still love to bake and my OH had discovered he likes more and more sweet treats.
This is perfect for me as I get the pleasure of looking for recipes and baking them and he gets to eat them all, a bit like Jack Sprat and his wife!
I like there to be a nice balance between shortbread, caramel and chocolate, but this one I made is a bit ticht with the shortbread, never mind it is a good excuse to make it again!
Truth be told I have an old church cookbook and the recipes refer to big and small condensed milk and now we only get the one size in the shops so I had to mix and match the recipe.
This recipe is where I got the caramel from and I am sure will be a good overall recipe as hers always are.

I love millionaires shortbread and this looks delicious.

Angela, I LOVE Caramel Shortbread. I used to make this from the BeRo book for church cake stalls but it never all got there! I like the Fussell's condensed milk for the caramel but I wonder if that stuff has any other use!

I forgot to say - 5 stone! In little more than a year! Gosh I am impressed. I bet the charity shops love you for sending them your old clothes. Well done you.

Angie, xx
