recipe for millionaires shortbread mary berry
Millionaire’s Shortbread has the perfect trio: A sweet, simple, crunchy shortbread, thick dark chocolate ganache, and a rich, chewy, homemade caramel.
I don’t believe (and they’ll correct you if I’m mistaken) that I have ever given my siblings anything poor food.
They will sometimes eat my recipe failures. But they only eat the best ones. Cupcakes that are slightly too dense or cookies that are a little too crumbly. I have never done anything quite so treacherous like trying to substitute bean brownies with regular brownies. This was something that one of my sisters did to me once (a deception that I will never forgive).
It’s a bit insulting that they are hesitant to eat any dessert other than a cookie, cake, or cupcake. They hover nervously with their forks over their plates, looking skeptical and suspicious. This could be an anthrax pie. Thank you.
After explaining to my fourth sibling, “It’s like an expensive, homemade, gourmet Twix bar”), not one of them seemed disappointed when they tried their first bite.
Millionaire’s shortbread is a delicious treat that will not be disappointed in. This is a recipe that I have wanted to try for some time and I am very happy to share it after much running around in the kitchen.
It’s rich and delicious. I don’t think it’s necessary to emphasize this fact. I suggested to my brothers and sisters that they cut each huge square into quarters. Although they look great in these photos, the squares are so dense that it can be difficult to eat one whole.
The shortbread (a fake shortbread) is lightly sweetened, but it serves as the crispy vehicle for transporting chewy caramel and a blanket chocolate ganache. It’s topped with sea salt to make it even more delicious. This shortbread isn’t called Millionaire’s shortbread.
It is possible to become a millionaire, and this has also changed the cookie crust of our shortbread. Surprise It’s not a true shortbread. This is the first change I made to this recipe when I tried my hand at a modern spin on it.
Shortbread is a classic recipe that only uses three ingredients: butter, flour, sugar. But Millionaire’s shortbread has more so we want it to live up to its name.
This cookie crust is made with egg yolk, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and is slightly more flavorful than regular shortbread. Your millionaire’s shortbread will be easier to cut than regular shortbread, which can break unevenly and scatter crumbs all over the place. However, it will still taste great beneath the soft chocolate and chewy caramel.
Andi loved the cookie layer so much that she asked me to make a pan of it alone.
I wish I could capture the steps of these multi-step recipes. I would love to see the crumb cookie dough, caramel at their peak before I pour it over the shortbread. But, since I have only two days to photograph 3-4 recipes, there isn’t enough light to take decent photos.
To compensate, I try to give detailed descriptions of the recipes. You can also drop me an email, leave a comment or visit my Facebook Page if there are any questions.
However, I think this recipe will work for you. The trickiest part of the recipe is the caramel. It doesn’t even need a candy thermometer.
