Millionairs shortbread with salted caramel

Miljonairs shortsbread with salted caramel |

Shortbread… Now that is typically one of those things that you weren’t able to find in the Netherlands not that long ago. The first time I ate a piece of a shortbread cookie was with a friend who had a thing for anything Great Brittain related. She made me eat a shortbread cookie. Did I like it? Not one bit I can tell you. I thought it was bland, fatty and just felt like eating a package of butter. I wasn’t used to that. We never made cookies at home and when I did bake them with a friend over at her place, we usually ended up eating all the dough instead… Lol.. That was usually better than the cookies…

In the meantime my taste has changed dramatically but shortbread is still not one of my favorite cookies. It contains so much butter that it always feels like a complete meal rather than an in between snack. But when  Caroline came to me with this miljonairs shortbread for our christmas shoot…. Now there was something different all together. It’s heavy so cut small pieces of it and nibble on them in the afternoon as otherwise you won’t feel like eating anymore!
