Millionaire Shortbread

April 30, 2013

Air-planes

I was speaking to a few people about what they would do if they won the lottery.  Eating like a king came up a few times but I would personally travel around the world.  My grandfather and grandmother loved air-planes so when I fly in the sky it makes me feel like I am closer to them.  You may be asking what this has to do with millionaire shortbread… It is all in the name.  Anything can make you feel like a millionaire.  Whether it is a sweet treat lazying around in bed or flying in the sky to another world.  I made a luxury home-made shortbread, a lovely toffee and indulgent chocolate topping.

This recipe was adapted from Sam Stern’s Student Cookbook (Walker Books).
