because i'm in a baking mood

Here's one of my favorites.

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 semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C).
2 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.
3 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.
4 Melt chocolate and pour over caramel layer. Cover the layer completely. Chill. Cut into squares

Hi Marti m,

I don't wait the full 5 minutes; I'm too impatient :)
