Caramel Shortbread Squares
2/3 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup white sugar
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 1/4 cups milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C).
In a medium bowl, mix together 2/3 cup butter, 1/4 cup white sugar, and
1 1/4 cup flour until evenly crumbly. Press into 9" square baking pan.
Bake for 20 minutes.
In a 2 quart saucepan, combine 1/2 cup butter, brown sugar, corn syrup,
and sweetened condensed milk. Bring to a boil. Continue to boil for 5
minutes. Remove from heat and beat vigorously with a wooden spoon for
about 3 minutes. Pour over baked crust (warm or cool). Cool until it
begins to firm.
Melt chocolate and pour over caramel layer. Cover the layer completely.
Chill. Cut into squares (about 48 - small because it is rich).
