I think this is one of my most requested recipes – a true British classic that defined childhoods nationwide. Although BBH has a (very yummy) shortbread recipe, I thought I’d find a simple all-in-one recipe that combines the three aspects of Millionaire’s shortbread together well. I had just watched an old episode of Bake Off, and it had James Morton in it… You know the clever Scottish med student? I always liked him (he reminds me of my brother, though, not as much as Tamal does!). I wanted him to win when he was in the competition! Yeah, so this is his recipe. And it’s really simple. Which my tired, unmotivated self currently appreciates.
These aren’t hugely labour intensive and including the chilling time, will take you under two hours. They are great with tea or coffee and aren’t too sweet. I adapted the recipe slightly by adding more salt than it calls for – I think that qualifies these as salted caramel millionaires shortbread. You guys know how I feel about salted caramel… 😏
