The Ultimate Caramel Shortbread from James Morton's How Baking Works cookbook. It’s not often that I am arrogant enough to believe that my recipe should be the standard on which all others are based. But here I am saying just that. It’s not only the best caramel shortcake I’ve ever had, but I’ve gone to great pains to keep the steps and ingredients very simple, too.
This delicious recipe is taken from Great British Bake Off 2014 Finalist, Luis Troyano’s recipe book; ‘Bake it Great’, published by Pavilion. “The Bakewell tart got me into baking. I live fairly close to Bakewell in the Peak District and would frequently take a visit there to stock up on the famous tarts, as well as the lesser-known Bakewell pudding.
