Posted By GKC On May 22, 2011 @ 2:00 am In dairy,Dessert,Easy Recipes,Weekly Recipes | No Comments

I always ignore shortbread recipes because of the butter in them (not to mention the calories!) but Shavuot is the perfect time to indulge! Here’s a delicious and easy shortbread recipe for your to try this year.

Shortbread:
½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1-1/3 cups flour
4-1/2 tablespoons superfine sugar

Topping:
½ cup (1 stick) butter
4-1/2 tablespoons superfine sugar
2 tablespoons corn syrup
¼ teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk

Glaze:
7 ounces semisweet chocolate

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Stir in flour and press into 9-inch square baking dish. Bake for about 20 minutes- until golden brown. Cool on rack.

For topping, combine butter, sugar, corn syrup and condensed milk in a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat slightly and simmer for 5 minutes, still stirring. Stir in vanilla and pour over shortbread. Cool for at least 1 hour.

For glaze, melt chocolate in saucepan over low heat or in microwave. Pour over shortbread and spread evenly. Cool until set. Cut into bars.

Still hungry? Here’s another of our delicious Shavuot recipes [2] for dessert.
