Millionaires shortbread: After Running A Race Treats

Millionaires shortbread: After Running A Race Treats.

As me and my 2 oldest boys are racing tonight I thought I’d make us a little treat for when we have done.

Millionaires shortbread: After Running A Race Treats:

These treats always bring a tear to my eye when making as my grandma always made them for me at Easter, Birthdays, Christmas or just whenever she thought of me.

Up until a year ago when she fell over and broke her leg, now she is in a nursing home unable to ever walk again.

Moving on… I made these last year and my oldest son said” I could just imagine bringing my family over to see you and you making me them “YES” not for a long long time I thought 🙂

If you’ve not got a food processor like me use a electric mixer but mine broke today so did it by hand (and the base didn’t turn out to good the shortbread stayed in the pan).

If there is a Fairy hob mother that I’ve been hearing a few blogs mention I would love a new Electric whisk 😉

 This is not my recipe all credits go to – The big book if baking.

Forgot to mention my 2 oldest boy’s ran for Nottinghamshire  in the County champs on Sunday. 

They came back with a medal each 1 with gold one with silver = very proud mum.

    I saw the heading "millionaires shortbread" and since I'd never heard of it, read on. Looks amazing!! And now I'm very excited because I know this as "caramel slice" – not sure if this is another name for it in the UK? I made it ages ago and it was a complete failure but I'll try it again using this. Thanks! x
