These Caramelized Sugar Shortbread Cookies are made with caramel dust or caramelized sugar that has been blitzed into fine ground. They are much like the classic shortbread cookies, without any fancy flavoring, yet with a tiny hint of caramel sweetness in their crumbs.
First, let it be known that this caramelized sugar shortbread cookie recipe is specifically made to give an idea on how to use left over caramel dust. You can very well substitute granulated sugar if you just want to make some good ole’ classic butter shortbread cookies. And those will still be totally delicious. But if you’ve spent the time to play with caramelized sugar and made caramelized sugar dust from it, you will need some ways to use it. And this is a delicious one! View Post
